Nina Sossamon-Pogue Biography

Nina Sossamon-Pogue is an inspirational powerhouse on and off the stage. Moving away from home at age 13, Sossamon-Pogue made the USA Gymnastics team in the 80’s but failed to make the 1984 Olympics. Competing for SEC powerhouse LSU in 1985, she had a career-ending knee injury, but went on to find a love for journalism and became a successful reporter and an Emmy-winning News Anchor. In her 40’s Sossamon-Pogue switched from TV to Tech and became a successful Corporate Leader. As the Vice President of Communications, she helped to navigate the SaaS startup through a highly successful IPO.

Now a Best-Selling Author, Podcast Host and sought after Speaker, Sossamon-Pogue is a catalyst for CHANGE on a mission to help others embrace our rapidly changing world, take on challenges, and reach their goals.

Sossamon-Pogue shares an unforgettable message of resilience and offers her Science backed, Data-driven, Stoic philosophy-infused framework to take control of your life story and handle all the challenges that come with striving to succeed.

With a focus on smart audiences and high achievers, she uses her astonishing stories of success and failure as a backdrop, to take audiences on an enlightening journey into their own strengths. Sossamon-Pogue created ‘The Reverse Resume’, to help individuals realize how far they have come, the ‘Success Cycle’ to help individuals embrace the ongoing challenges they are creating for themselves, and her signature “THIS Framework” to handle any adversity.

Sossamon-Pogue’s first book, THIS is Not ‘The End’: Strategies to Get You Through the Worst Chapters of Your Life (2019 Morgan James Publishing) offers readers strategies to handle life’s most difficult challenges and control their own destiny.

Authentic and intelligent, with a contagious energy, Sossamon-Pogue’s 15+ years on TV combined with her 10+ years on the leadership team at a high-growth technology company make her uniquely qualified to connect with a corporate audience.
