Tasha Schuh – Speaker, Author, and Resilience Expert


Tasha Schuh is an inspiration and hope for all who face life’s challenges. Tasha’s life changed dramatically when she was 16 years old; she was in a theater accident that left her paralyzed from the chest down. Today she has accomplished more than she could have ever dreamed.


She has received numerous awards including The National Rehabilitation Champion Award and The Hometown Hero Award. In addition to authoring the books My Last Step Backward and My Next Move Forward, she also founded the PATH Curriculum which serves to expand Tasha’s message, as well as educates middle and high school students about mental health.


Tasha specializes in building resilience for mental and emotional health, recently received the SAVE certification on her keynote message. She delivers this message to schools, youth conferences, and other organizations across the nation. Since 2007, she travels around the country, inspiring and challenging her listeners to overcome and persevere, no matter what life throws their way. She shares her story of resilience and triumph over tragedy at schools, conferences, and organizations.


Tasha is currently booking speaking engagements for the 2020/2021 school year. Her message is typically delivered in an assembly setting – but in light of the varying modes of education delivery that schools are facing, her message can also be delivered virtually or in a hybrid model.


Tasha resides with her husband Doug in Ellsworth, Wisconsin.
