2023 SPEAKER HIGHLIGHTS
Jessica Pryce, PhD.
As an Assistant Professor in the College of Social Work at Florida State University and the Executive Director of The Florida Institute for Child Welfare, her foremost responsibility is providing evidence-informed recommendations to Florida’s legislative policymakers. Dr. Pryce was a child welfare caseworker, investigating child maltreatment in Florida, before pursuing her doctorate degree. Having experience at multiple levels of child welfare (direct practice, policy analysis, child advocacy, program administration, teaching and research), her perspective is unique.
Senator Holly Rehder
State Senator Holly Thompson Rehder is a known voice in the fight against opioid addiction and the stigma of mental illness. Growing up on welfare, quitting school at fifteen, becoming a mother at sixteen, and ultimately,
deciding to do things differently, Holly brings a unique perspective to the poverty cycle in America. A conservative who speaks candidly from personal experience as someone who lived it as a child, got out as a teen, only to see
her daughter caught in it, is a bit of an anomaly.
Diana Chao is a first-generation Buyi Chinese-American immigrant from Southern California. Diana founded Letters to Strangers (L2S) when she was a sophomore in high school after bipolar disorder and a blinding eye condition nearly ended her life. By beginning to heal through letters, she discovered that writing is humanity distilled into ink. Today, L2S is the largest global youth-for-youth mental health nonprofit, impacting over 35,000 people annually on six continents and publishing the world’s first youth-for-youth mental health guidebook for free.
