Meet our Keynote Speaker

A retired FBI Victim Specialist and Resiliency Trainer, Gayle Thom has worked and lectured all over the world. She has collaborated on-site with authorities of Scotland Yard, London Metropolitan Police, Royal Canadian Mounted Police and England’s INTERPOL headquarters, and has been privileged to work extensively on Tribal and non-Tribal lands throughout the United States.

Thom was assigned to New York City after 9/11 and was humbled to assist the victims, their families, and Ground Zero rescue/recovery workers after the World Trade Center terrorist attack. She also worked in Louisiana, providing services to Hurricane Katrina survivors and responded to the Red Lake school shooting in Minnesota when ten students died and more were tragically injured. 

While serving on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation for ten years as a victim specialist, she was humbled to twice receive the Oglala Lakota Nation Dedicated Service Honor. Thom now works as a contractor and trainer for the US Department of Justice. She lives in Rapid City, South Dakota - surrounded by the love of her husband, children, and grandchildren.
