Mezzapelle is the author of Contagious Optimism, an uplifting book series that contains real stories from real people around the globe which demonstrates that every cloud has a silver lining.
TEDx is a new program that enables local communities such as schools, businesses, libraries, neighborhoods or just groups of friends to organize, design and host their own independent, TED-like events. TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.
CHOICE: The space between emotion and action; fear and forgiveness.
Gina's story is a very personal one. It is the story of a journey of coming to terms with her own experiences of physical, emotional and sexual violence and her path to a place of healing: a process that involved self-compassion, letting go of shame, and ultimately, recognizing and taking ownership of her own part in the drama.
In Gina's words: "My story is, in some measure, every woman's story. It is a story about the ways in which we, as women, and ultimately as human beings, abandon ourselves and in the process, unwittingly co-create some much of our own pain."
Gina's work explores "the space between" emotion and action; the space where we are always at choice, the space of revelation and of strength. It is the space where we meet our shadow and where the power of acknowledgement and self-compassion can begin to melt away the crippling impact of shame and let the healing begin."
Gina is certified through the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) as a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC). her focus is on bringing a paradigm of Conscious Leadership into the world.

Coach Cafe' is thrilled to welcome Kristen Moeller, M.S. author of 'What Are You Waiting For? Learn How To Rise To The Occasion Of Your Life'!
After losing her dream home and all her worldly possessions to a raging and sudden wildfire that killed three people and demolished 21 homes, Kristen Moeller dove headfirst into an exploration of our cultural discomfort with grief, the existence of God, finding humor in the midst of tragedy – and what it means to be a human being with all our fabulousness as well as frailties. Drawing on her two decades of training in psychology and personal growth as well as her own recovery from addiction in 1989, Kristen is a voice for the countless others who beg to be heard in their wild journey through this wacky world. During her TEDx talks, stand-up comedy routines as well as appearances on local TV and newspapers, Kristen shares her hard-earned wisdom coupled with a spirited inquiry around the raw emotions we encounter when dealing with life’s ups and downs. As part of her commitment to others finding their own path to freedom, Kristen founded the Chick-a-go Foundation (now the TransformationFoundation.org) which provides ‘pay-it-forward’ scholarships to transformational education programs.

Dr. Bruce Ramshaw is the epitome of someone who "walks the talk" and he gives plenty of important talks from TedX to major medical conferences around the world. But more importantly, he implements the solution in a new type of healthcare clinic.
He is also founder of what he says is the new model in person centered care: Advanced Hernia Solutions. The entire team is built around the relationship with the providers and the patients, and uses the latest in technology to the most basic in physician-patient relationships: personal communication, education, and ensuring real comfort and understanding.
A sought after educator, speaker and trainer, he writes and talks about the change that must happen in healthcare because as he writes about complexity science, the model they are implementing, "In complexity science, one principle is that transformational system change can only occur when the system is on the edge of chaos. Another reason for my hope lies in the belief that our healthcare system is close to that edge."
He's a member of The Walking Gallery, and written for the healthcare industry and providers frequently as can be seen on our website from General Surgery News and taught another 100 publications and over 100 national and international courses.
Dr. Ramshaw is the President Elect of the Americas Hernia Society. He was Chief of General Surgery at the University of Missouri, founder of the Emory Hernia Institute, and did his residency at the Georgia Baptist Medical Center after attending medical school at the University of Florida. He is one of the leaders in several laparoscopic procedures internationally.
Dr. Bruce Ramshaw is both a doctors' doctor and a patient advocate. We'll be speaking with them both on how it will take total transformation to save healthcare today.
