West Long Branch, NJ (January 19, 2012) Monmouth University Center for Entrepreneurship presents DonnaLyn Giegerich on Tuesday, January 24, 2012 at 11 a.m. in Young Auditorium in Bey Hall. The presentation is free and open to the public.

DonnaLyn is a daring adventurer and lifelong community advocate and business leader that believes we’re all capable of so much more. Today she advocates globally for rare sarcoma cancers as a midlife pageant winner, athlete, spokesperson and model in print and on the runway. She survived a ten-hour cancer surgery for Leiomyosarcoma and chose to run, bike and swim through chemotherapy, radiation and surgical rehab while readying to support her husband in his cancer journey. Undeterred by their unique circumstances, she has turned this challenge into a freeway of opportunity for others by creating empowering paradigms in service to others (i.e. Kick Cancer Overboard, Yoga program for TeamSurvivorTriState to name a few).

Today, she speaks professionally as a leadership trainer and motivational keynoter on Resiliency & Daring adventures marrying her East meets West business background to empower teams and individuals to do more with less. She’s grateful to be cancer free and is busy elevating what’s possible for others as they move the needle forward in their life and career goals.

DonnaLyn graduated with honors from Red Bank Catholic High, Albright College, and Monmouth University’s School of Business.
