Karina will share her story about choosing her own path and exploring it – no matter if the exploration is from the tops of mountains, or simply within herself. Her incredible journey will dare attendees to dream again – and inspire them to go out and chase those dreams.

Karina, a highly respected Norwegian-born freeskier and BASE jumper, became the first female to complete a ski-BASE jump. In 2006, Karina’s pro skiing and BASE jumping career was cut short when she suffered from 25 leg fractures in a near-fatal aerial accident. With guardian angels she balanced between life and death and survived against all odds. For the first time in her life she was 100% depending on other people.

She endured 20 surgeries and has had to relearn to walk, but she has returned to skiing and is living life to the fullest today.

Hear her gripping story about her struggle back to life and her unconquerable spirit of finding a new way of life.
