Chad Lambie, US Navy Special Operations, Author of “No Excuses.”
Chad Lambie has spoken for high school graduations as the commencement speaker, as well as at many high school functions, always with a focus on overcoming adversity. He aspires to help improve the lives of others around him in the example of Christ.
Chad Lambie was born with a rare syndrome called Cleidocranial Dysplasia Dysostosis (CCD). He has a motto of “No Excuses” and is committed to being a Swim Buddy for anyone in need. Though he has a special burden to help people dealing with the same syndrome he has, Chad also provides motivation, and real-life success formulas for overcoming any adversity.
Chad is believed to be the only person ever diagnosed with CCD to try out and graduate from a Navy Special Warfare selection program. He spent six years in the Naval Special Warfare community as a Special Warfare Combatant Craft Crewman (SWCC). Through this arduous training and lifestyle, he was able to forge life lessons in integrity, organization, and mental toughness to name a few. He hopes to give back the knowledge he has gained.
Chad has also been teaching for the last five years in secondary education from 2016 – Present at Milo Adventist Academy. Teaching, presenting, and working with people are some of his passions, and he hopes to see the ripple effect of his information affecting the lives of others for years to come.
In addition to the life experiences mentioned above, Chad was also a college baseball player, MVP, and USCAA player of the week two times, as well as a three-time captain in the NCAA II level. He played for Columbia Union College (now Washington Adventist University) from 2000 – 2004.
