Allicia Johnson Niles

is available in the United States and internationally as a keynote speaker, panel member and presenter.

Through the power of her own journey, she shows, not just tells, audiences who face seemingly insurmountable odds how to have Unlikely Courage to right wrongs, create impactful change, and heal from abuse, mental health, and addiction. Her message especially resonates with audiences reeling from the impact of death, loss, and survivor's grief, particularly in military groups and families. 

Allicia has a long history of public speaking and advocacy and can customize trainings according to organizational needs for small groups up to gatherings of several thousand.


She has a soft spot for audiences of women and girls, where she shares unique aspects of her journey to empower and uplift.
