In the February program, Moving from Criticized to Conqueror, Stacey Skrysak spoke of how she dealt with public criticism as a television news anchor/personality. Stacey was dealing with personal and professional challenges that are difficult to understand.

She shared her very personal story of overcoming, pushing forward and finding the inner confidence to start new chapters in the various areas of her life. She is a strong woman who changed her thoughts, captured the attention of people nationwide with a YouTube video that went viral and is speaking out about bullying in the media and taking on life’s storms.


About the speaker:

Skrysak is a familiar face to Central Illinois, appearing at the news desk weeknights on Newschannel 20. After facing years of criticism in the public eye, Stacey has taken a stand against bullies, showing others that it’s the beauty and confidence on the inside that counts.

While she’s well known as a news anchor, her proudest role is being a mother. Stacey is a mother to a 22-week surviving triplet and two angels in Heaven. Through her popular blog, Perfectly Peyton, she has become a voice for infertility, premature birth and child loss.
