This year's keynote speaker, Karen Mills, has been in the humor business for over 25 years. As a comedian, she has worked clubs and theaters across the country and can be heard daily on Sirius/XM Comedy Channels. She is a master at finding the humor in any situation and that didn't change when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Determined to take on the disease with hope and humor, Karen turned her pain into punchlines and is now a sought after speaker presenting her comedy with a message. She has delivered the keynote, spoken at survivor events, fundraisers, sports banquets, and given commencement addresses. Now cancer free, Karen has been hailed for her ability to bring humor to difficult topics and was chosen to speak at TEDxChattanooga, 2016.
