October 21, 2015 – PeopleShare’s 7th XPert Café was a huge success! Held at the Sheraton Valley Forge, over 200 guests filled the crowd to listen to Stephanie Decker give an inspiring and emotional story about how to ‘Find Your Inner Hero’.
On March 2, 2012 a tornado ripped through Henryville, Indiana and Stephanie Decker found herself in a life altering situation. As her house began to crumble around her, she shielded her two young children with her body. Her dream home fell to pieces, crushing her legs BUT leaving her children without a scratch. Stephanie had to have both legs amputated – her legs may have been crushed but her spirit wasn’t! She did not let this situation get her down instead she set goals for herself, powered through the pain and set out to find out her purpose and why this happened to her. In that journey is when she founded the Stephanie Decker Foundation. Her foundation helps kids with prosthetics have access to the latest prosthetic technology while also providing kids an opportunity to be kids and play sports!
Stephanie’s story is an inspirational one, and she set out to show the audience that no matter what, storms in life are inevitable, but letting them defeat you is optional!
Preparations for 2016’s XPert Café are underway, please stay tuned for details on the upcoming event, we hope that you will join us!
