Meet Our Speaker:

Maureen Zappala, a former NASA propulsion engineer, is an author, award winning professional speaker, and the founder of High Altitude Strategies. She encourages high-performers who struggle with the "Impostor Syndrome," the internal voice that says "I'm not as smart as everyone thinks I am!"

With a BS in mechanical engineering from the University of Notre Dame, she became the first female and youngest manager of NASA's Propulsion Systems Laboratory. While most engineers are not known for verbal communication skills, Maureen has shattered that stereotype.

In 2009, she was in the top 10 of 30,000 contestants in the Toastmasters World Championship of Public Speaking contest.

She's the author of "Great Speakers are Not Born. They're Built," and is working on her next book: ""Over-Achiever, Under-Believer: How to Match Your Confidence to Your Competence."
