Kate Garnes

Keynote Speaker

Originally from the great state of Missouri, Kate was an only child raised on unsweet tea, playing outside, and teenage mutant ninja turtles by a strong single mom. Growing up small compared to others her age, Kate always felt the need to try to chase that pesky little thing called perfection, which of course was a losing fight. In working with youth for over ten years, Kate can see the same chase for perfection in teens that I saw in myself. Kate uses her story of being told by trusted adults and friends that she was never good enough, to being a performer at Walt Disney World to a personal trainer for former professional athletes and top corporate executives to help teens see their own value apart from the chase for perfection.

Kate spends her life trying to speak to as many teens as possible in the hopes that they will stop listening to the lies they have believed for so long, and start accepting the gladiator of greatness that is inside them.

Kate's energy, humor, and genuine love for others has captivated audiences from California to Florida.

VSCA is pleased to welcome Kate Garnes to the 2020 State Convention as our Keynote Speaker.
