Sally Karioth

Grief Counselor and Motivational Speaker

Sally Karioth is a very special public speaker who has a gift for evoking a wide range of emotions from her audience. It is a gift she has acquired from her varied experiences as a nurse, teacher, writer, talk show hostess and nationally renowned grief therapist. And if one sentence characterizes her speeches, it is her slogan "life is not a dress rehearsal."

Karioth is a 1967 graduate of the Wisconsin-Green Bay Bellin School of Nursing and a 1969 graduate of the University of Wisconsin (Madison), of which she was named an outstanding Alumnus in 1992. She went on to earn two master's degrees and a Ph.D. Since 1970, Karioth has been a member of the faculty of Florida State University School of Nursing, where she teaches one of the university's most popular courses on death and dying. For more than 20 years, Karioth also has been a counselor, helping people cope with the death of loved ones. Her particular concern is parents who have lost a child to death.

Karioth recently updated and expanded her 1985 book, If You Want To Know If You're Dying, Ask the Cleaning Lady (And Other Thoughts On Life and Happiness). The book offers a common sense, sometimes humorous, approach to illness and death, and emphasizes that bereavement is a natural part of life to which we are all entitled.

Karioth carries that message on the lecture trail, over which she travels more than 500,000 miles a year, and repeats it in motivation tapes and videos sold at her speeches. Most in demand among business, education and health care groups, Karioth takes listeners on a rollicking ride of funny anecdotes, somber insights and helpful suggestions. To book motivational speaker Sally Karioth call Executive Speakers Bureau 901-754-9404.
