Motivational Keynote Speaker Taya Kyle is an author and an outspoken leader for veterans and military families. Taya is the widow of American hero and former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle whose story was immortalized in the 2015 Clint Eastwood film American Sniper starring Bradley Cooper. Since his tragic death in 2013, Taya has carried on her husband’s mission to help others as a Motivational Keynote Speaker touching on the topics of faith, family, and the challenges many veterans and military families face on a daily basis.
She earned the respect of many after her riveting speech at the 2013 National Rifle Association’s annual meeting mere months after her husband had been murdered by a former Marine suffering from PTSD. Taya has since created the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation in honor of her late husband’s vision to provide needed support for other veterans and military families.
In May of 2015, Motivational Keynote Speaker Taya Kyle published a book titled American Wife: A Memoir of Love, War, Faith, and Renewal. In it she takes readers on an emotional journey through the months and years following her husband’s tragic death. Taya has served as a guest commentator on a variety of major news networks and programs including Fox News, MSNBC, CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Good Morning America.
Motivational Keynote Speaker Taya Kyle recently joined together with a group of veterans and military members including Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell who have come together to form Team Never Quit and the Patriot Tour. The Patriot Tour is an event put on in cities across the United States that brings together musical guests and keynote speakers that embody faith, family, service, sacrifice and community.
