2021 Speakers' Biography

Vanessa Hamm

Having lived in more than 38 places across 6 countries, Vanessa M Hamm is engaging, adventurous and exceptionally gifted in bridging the gap of what is and what could be. Working alongside global and local government, business, non-profit- and her own entrepreneurial efforts for 15+ years- Vanessa has been stopped in her tracks 3 times by anxiety, injury and unresolved trauma from her past. Until, at 25, Christ fought for her life. Now she joyfully approaches life from a place of increased wholeness, purpose and freedom!
