Rest for a moment and do something for yourself: LAUGH! Spend time gathering wisdom and wit from our keynote speaker, Anita Renfroe. She will share her unique brand of estrogen-flavored musical comedy and blend of sass, edge and slightly offbeat takes on All Things Female.
Comedian and author Anita Renfroe became an overnight Internet sensation when her YouTube video of her singing everything a mother says to her children in a single day to the tune of “The William Tell Overture” in just two minutes and fifty-five seconds was viewed by millions. Renfroe was featured on morning and late night entertainment and news programs and resulted in her becoming a comedy contributor for Good Morning America.
With her unique brand of estrogen-flavored musical comedy and blend of sass, edge and slightly offbeat takes on All Things Female, audiences at her comedy concert tours, viewers of her TV appearances and the YouTube masses would say she just says what everyone is thinking, but won't say out loud.
Anita has been featured in The New York Times, Readers Digest, Women’s Day and The Washington Post.
Anita Renfroe is wife to her hunka burnin’ love, John, and mother to three children (but who cares about them?!) – and 6 grandbabies! They reside in suburban Atlanta.
Healthcare heroes from the community and health/wellness fields have been carefully chosen for the purpose of giving you plenty to learn and practice. We are covering all topics that keep women up at night, from protecting our children and caring for aging parents to those darn night sweats!
