Founder & CEO
SelfCare for HealthCare
LeAnn Thieman is a nationally acclaimed professional speaker, author, and nurse who was “accidentally” caught up in the Vietnam Orphan Airlift in 1975. Her book, This Must Be My Brother, details her daring adventure of helping to rescue 300 babies as Saigon was falling to the communists. An ordinary person, she struggled through extraordinary circumstances and found the courage to succeed.
After her Operation Babylift story was featured in Chicken Soup for the Mother’s Soul, LeAnn became one of Chicken Soup’s most prolific writers. Her devotion to more than 30 years of nursing made her the ideal co-author of the New York Times best-seller, Chicken Soup for the Nurse’s Soul, and Chicken Soup for the Nurse’s Soul, Second Dose, then the third edition, Inspiration for Nurses.
Her latest book, SelfCare for HealthCare, Your Guide to Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Health is a dynamic component of her transformational SelfCare for HealthCare program.
She is one of ten percent of speakers worldwide to have earned the Certified Speaking Professional designation. In August 2008, she was inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame, joining the company of Ronald Reagan, Colin Powell, and Art Linkletter! LeAnn is the only woman in Colorado to be honored with the “Legend of the Speaking Profession” award.
When she’s not writing stories beside a peaceful mountain stream, LeAnn enjoys hiking, gardening, playing with her grandkids, cuddling with her hubby of 46 years, horseback riding, and dancing to that old-time rock ‘n’ roll!
