Get to Know Lance

Lance has been on the leading edge of the battle against depression and suicide for more than 4o years. His personal traumas and tragedies, both as a teen civilian and as U.S. military member, provide Lance with the experience, insight, recovery, and megaphone to tell his story in a way that is saving lives. Over the last two decades as a veteran services counselor, he has discovered how both he, our military heroes, and everyone else can rise out of the depths of sadness and suicide risk when one shares their personal story.

Lance is a U.S. Navy military veteran and holds a Master’s Degree in Education (Student Services emphasis) from Old Dominion University. For 20 years, Lance has served as the Director of Veteran Today, a military veterans’ service organization, and counseled scores of men and women struggling with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other service-related issues. He is a Certified Peer Support Counselor and Conflict Mediation Specialist. He is also the author of four books including “Creating the Life You Want.”

An accomplished speaker, Lance has made over 1,000 public presentations since 2005. His deeply personal experience with his topics maintains an authenticity in delivery that is deeply felt by the audience.
