Convention Keynote Speakers
Muffy Davis, Stanfordmuffy davis_website
Tri Delta sister Muffy Davis was practically born on skis. She was a member of the United States Disabled Ski Team, and has proved herself through her determination and many accomplishments.

Always a goal setter, when she was eight, Muffy told her mother, “God made me to be a ski racer!” and declared that she would ski race in the Olympics. Unfortunately, tragedy struck in February of 1989. While downhill training in her hometown of Sun Valley, ID, Muffy went off course and slammed into a tree, crushing her back and resulting in complete paraplegia. Although devastated at the loss of her chances to become a skiing champion, but Muffy was never one to stay down long. She chose to refocus the time and energy she usually spent on racing towards academics and community service. She graduated from Stanford University, where she was awarded the Alumni Association’s only award for service to the community and was initiated into the Omega Chapter of Tri Delta.

Now as a retired ski racer, Muffy is building her career in motivational speaking and is working on a book. Additionally, she is a spokesperson for Independence Technology, a Johnson & Johnson Company and the CDC’s Tobacco Free Sports Program. Muffy also works as a Development Officer at the University of Utah Health Sciences Rehabilitation Center. Read more about Muffy.
