Biography

Lola D. Gillebaard was born and raised in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. A premature birth left her with poor motor control and other serious health challenges that would result in 17 major surgeries. She has also had a bout with cancer. She now shrugs it all off as 'just a big nuisance" on her wonderful path through life and finds humor with every step.

As a graduate of Salem College, she was chosen to be included in Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. Ms. Gillebaard began her career as a teacher, then met and married her husband and settled in Southern California, where she eventually raised four sons. As an associate college professor, businesswoman, free-lance writer, wife and mother, she has always touched people's hearts and funny bones.

Lola Gillebaard received the first-place Reader Digest writer's award for her article, "Old Enough to Die" about her father, which has been published internationally. She also co-authored the book, Change Your Life with Humor. She has researched the benefits of humor for the past thirty-five years and witnessed the magic of its healing. Her most recent book, Laughter Made from Experience, is filled with inspiring and heart-warming stories of her many challenging situations told with the Southern charm, wit and humor that is her signature style.

Ms. Gillebaard's career as a humorous speaker has taken her across the United Stated many times, to Australia often, and into international waters as featured speaker on several cruise ships. She is past president of the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the National Speakers Association and winner of both their Silver Foot and Connie awards. She is also the recipient of the VFW Unsung Heroine and the AAUW "Women of Achievement" awards. She was recently appointed to the Health and Integrated Medicine Board at University of California-Irvine after her performance of "Laughter is the Best Medicine" at the Susan Samueli Center.

People of all ages fall in love with Lola Gillebaard's charm, sincerity, upbeat attitude and her ability to capture your audiences. She is magic on the platform with a life time of experience and knowledge as a professor, successful business woman, mother, wife and mostly as a fun and funny woman that will not only make them laugh but also touch their heart. She creates sparkle for everyone she meets.
