Lucy Cantu

2022 Keynote Speaker - Lucy V. Cantu

Lucy V. Cantú is a “Mom turned Speaker & Coach.” Years ago, she put her career on hold to stay home and raise two daughters. While volunteering at their school, she seized a part-time opportunity to teach English to immigrant parents. In time, she observed a “hunger” in her adult students—a desire to learn all they could to help their children do well in school and succeed. That desire inspired Lucy. She sensed a “calling” to somehow make a difference.

She took the lead, integrating her past professional experience as a Bilingual Health Educator for the City of Dallas and Community Liaison for Dallas Schools, and established a bilingual training company. The goal: to help parents and educators of “at-risk” families grow their capacities to help children rise above limitations and succeed. Ever since, Lucy has been on a mission to awaken, inspire, and teach others to live true to their potential and lead lives filled with love, wellbeing, meaning & joy.

Ever the trailblazer, she has presented to school districts, organizations and at regional, state, and national conferences around the country.
