An inspiring career change

What is this Ted Talk I Watched? It's at the tip of my tongue, and I don't want to sift through over 1600 talks to find it. Plus, I can't think of the words to start searching for it besides very generic keywords.

I remember this Ted Talk was a few years back, probably around 2009 or 2010 (and it wasn't recent. The speaker was a Caucasian female speaker who took a big change in her fast-pace consulting job around the age of 29. After, she took a life of something different, like charity or something. It is possible it is a Tedx talk as well.

No, neither of these two are it. Something traumatic had happened to this woman, like a near death experience.
