We all have an Everest. Each of us. Sometimes the peak is literally Mount Everest, but most times it lies deep within us, figuratively occupying a mountainous inner space. It calls us to rise up, to do what we formerly labelled as impossible, and to be who we deeply and desperately want to be.

Pursuing our dreams requires leaps of faith, heaps of humour, dashes of discipline, mountains of luck, and the ability to ride large waves of emotion. Accepting the invitation to seek a dream is the first step followed by intensive planning, training, and outreach.

TA Loeffler utilizes this model repeatedly when nurturing her own dreams and the dreams of others. In her presentation, TA will invite you to discover your own Everest and reflect on your own mountainous journey. TA will entertain and inspire with a multimedia presentation of the life lessons learned from training for, reaching, and climbing the world’s highest mountains.

"Dr. TA Loeffler brings 30 years of expertise leading people through significant life-changing experiences to every facet of her work. Her work and adventures have taken her to 45 different countries and all seven continents. TA has completed 6 and 4/5 of “The Seven Summits,” the highest peak on all seven continents. In 2015, TA was named to the “Canada’s Greatest Explorers 100 Modern-Day Trailblazers List” by Canadian Geographic.

As a Professor of Outdoor Recreation at Memorial University of Newfoundland, TA has developed a reputation for excellence in experiential education because her students are more likely to be outside chasing icebergs than sitting in a classroom. TA inspires hope, possibility, and vision in those whose lives she touches.

Over the past fifteen years, TA has shared her message of “Big Dreams, Big Goals” with over 100,000 youth in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador."
