Speakers for this event
Wisconsin-Green Bay Bellin School of Nursing
Some public speakers make you laugh. Some speakers make you cry. Some speakers make you look at life differently. Sally Karioth is a very special public speaker, because she makes you do all three. It is a gift she has acquired from her varied experiences as a nurse, teacher, writer, talk-show hostess and nationally renowned grief therapist. If one sentence characterizes the message of her speeches, it is her slogan: ''Life is not a dress rehearsal.'' ''Everyday,'' she tells audiences, ''you should have at least one exquisite moment.'' Karioth holds degrees from the Wisconsin-Green Bay Bellin School of Nursing, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Florida State University and the University of Florida. Dr. Karioth is a longtime faculty member of the Florida State University College of Nursing, where she teaches one of the university's most popular courses, called ''Death, the Individual and the Family.'' For more than 35 years, Karioth also has been a counselor, helping people cope with the death of loved ones. Her concern is parents who have lost a child to death. Her book, If You Want To Know If You're Dying, Ask the Cleaning Lady (And Others Thoughts On Life and Happiness), offers a common sense, sometimes humorous, approach to illness and death. Karioth has also contributed to two other widely available books: Chicken Soup for the Surviving Soul and Feeling Safe: Talking To Children About War and Terrorism. Karioth has been active in trauma work and is called frequently to events nationwide to speak to tragedy survivors and mental health officials suffering compassion fatigue. Karioth has received numerous national, state and local awards, and appeared in two-award winning public service films. She appears frequently in radio and television shows.
