Gail Muller was diagnosed with a crippling muscular-skeletal issue which was predicted to cause her masses of pain. Gail was always healthy when she was young, which is why when the doctors gave her a bleak diagnosis of becoming wheelchair-bound by the time she turned 40, she thought she would be ok. During her 20s, however, Gail soon discovered this would not be the case and lost 15 years of her life to the condition because of the pain it caused her, both mentally and physically. Gail now motivates others in her incredible keynote speeches, and with nearly two decades of experience as a teacher, shares how our flaws are actually our superpowers.
All her life, Gail tried to push through the pain her body was putting her through. She graduated with a degree in Ancient History and Classical Archaeology from the University of Warwick. She then gained her Postgraduate Diploma in Broadcast Journalism from Falmouth University before gaining her Postgraduate Certificate of Education from the University of Exeter. Gail has experience teaching students all over the world, as well as in the UK. She was the Director of Learning for Camborne Science and International Academy, a Seconded Teacher at Scuola Europea di Varese, the Head of Faculty at Brannel School and a private International Tutor.
All throughout her career Gail came up with excuses as to why she cancelled her plans. After a low point in her life, Gail wanted to find a cure beyond pills for her pain – this came whilst she was in Italy. The physical therapy reduced her physical pain but it was the outdoors which helped with her mental health. This is something she discusses in her best-selling memoir ‘Unlost: A Journey of Self-Discovery and the Healing Power of the Wild Outdoors’. All of us have strength buried within but as Gail discovered, sometimes we need some encouragement to uncover the strength. Gail has become a master at overcoming obstacles, she had to overcome 15 years of pain to change her lifestyle and is now the Founder of The Unlost Collective. When she was 41 years old, Gail set herself the challenge of completing the 2200 mile Appalachian Trail, proving to herself, and others, the benefits of holding hope through adversity can bring you.
Having been diagnosed with ADHD late in her life, Gail completed her master’s in Inclusive Education so she can help others who are neurodivergent to reach their full potential. Gail brilliantly shares the trials and tribulations she faced throughout her life and is now dedicating herself to helping others find their confidence by using nature. She is also proof that anyone is able to face adversity in their path, no matter their age. Do not miss your chance to hear Gail Muller sharing her tips on how to develop resilience and a growth mindset today.
