Me + WWBC, Better Together: The 8th Annual WWBC Conference is scheduled for April 13, and the Western Women's Business Center is excited to share that Jennifer Pharr Davis will be the event's keynote speaker.

In addition to Jennifer and our other incredible speakers and panelists, attendees will be joined by small business owners from across the region, as well as business resource providers and community partners.

The morning will kick off with a full, hot breakfast buffet and live music, and include keynote speakers, panel presentations, a resource fair, networking opportunities, and giveaways and goodie bags!

Jennifer Pharr Davis is an internationally recognized adventurer, speaker, author, and entrepreneur who has hiked more than 14,000 miles of trails on six different continents.

In 2011 she set the overall fastest known time on the Appalachian Trail by finishing the 2,185-mile foot path in 46 days (an average of 47 miles a day). And she hasn't slowed down since.

Jennifer has backpacked 700 miles pregnant, walked across North Carolina while nursing her newborn son, and hiked in all 50 states with her two-year-old daughter.

She is a member of the President’s Council of Sports, Fitness and Nutrition, was featured in the 2020 IMAX film Into America’s Wild, and served on the board of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.

Jennifer is truly a force of nature. But what excites her most is introducing people to the life-changing opportunities that nature provides.
