Meet 2019 Speaker, Kimberly Williams-Paisley!
Actress, Author, Advocate



Many know Kimberly Williams-Paisley as the bride in the popular Father of the Bride movies, the calculating Peggy Kenter on Nashville, or the wife of country music superstar, Brad Paisley. But behind the scenes, Kim has been dealing with a tragic secret: her mother, Linda, suffers from a rare form of dementia that has slowly crippled her ability to talk, write and even recognize people in her own family.

In Where the Light Gets In, her much anticipated memoir and now a New York Times Bestseller, Kim tells the full story of her mother's illness and how she, her father family educated themselves, tried to let go of shame and secrecy, made mistakes, and found unexpected humor and grace in the midst of suffering.

“[Kimberley Williams-Paisley] has helped to rekindle a national dialogue on family, sickness, and health, and she’s given countless individuals an opportunity to talk about their own experiences, struggles, fears, and hopes for the future.” -Michael J. Fox
