The keynote speaker, Cyndi Targosz, is a well-known image consultant who has worked with several celebrities. Her presentation discusses the balance of physical and psychological health in regards to body image. Cyndi is bringing a panel of 4: William Gladstone-- a renowned literary agent and author of a book about celebrities who discuss their quest for happiness; Schatar Sapphira-- an actress; April Sampson-- a professional businesswoman who posed for Playboy magazine; and Cynthia Romo -- a two-time Emmy winner makeup/hair artist for "Dancing with the Stars."
