Stacy Allison can help people overcome their challenges. She has climbed the world’s most famous mountain becoming the first American woman to summit Mt. Everest.
Her adventures began when she started getting serious about alpine climbing at age 21. Stacy was successful as she reached the highest North American point, the top of Mt. McKinley in Alaska within a year. Her first attempt on Mt. Everest failed. She returned with the Northwest American Everest Expedition and reached the summit after 29 days in 1988. She later led a successful K2 expedition on the world’s second highest mountain.
Mountains aren’t her only successes. She owns and operates Stacy Allison Gemera; Contracting where she and a team of builders specialize in high-end restoration. She is also an author of Beyond The Limits: A Woman’s Triumph on Everest that details her expedition. She has a second book Many Mountains to Climb: Reflections on Competence, Courage and Commitment that relates anecdotal accounts of climbing challenges.
Stacy challenges audiences to set a foundation for risk by accepting responsibility for their lives. She focuses on recognizing and valuing everyone’s contribution to a team.
