On February 28th, KSB Hospital is excited to bring an international and motivational speaker to the Dixon Historic Theatre stage.  Dale Smith Thomas will be joined by KSB physicians, Dr. Robb Rydzynski and Dr. Cheryl Schwalm for a night of insight and inspiration.

In addition to speaking worldwide, she has also had many national television appearances.  Because of her dynamic work she has been a featured guest expert on the Dr. Phil Show and The Big Idea on CNBC.  She was featured in a documentary on The Travel Channel, hosted a national television show with the late Dick Clark and was featured in a Fox Reality Show with Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie.  In addition, she is the author of Good Morning Gorgeous which offers a unique perspective to women of all ages on how to be confident, courageous and convinced.

Dale’s biggest impact is on her audience members and one of them said it best.  “Dale’s name should read Dale Smith Thomas, Ph.D. – the Hope Doctor.  When asked her definition of hope, Dale sums up her life and her message stating, “I believe hope is “Helping Other People Excel” and that is my goal each and every time I am privileged to step on the stage and share my message.”
