Speaking & Media

As a former quiet kid in the back of class that would turn brighter red than a tomato when my name was called on, I’ve come a long way in my public speaking. One of my favorite things is getting to connect with others on their own journey in life.

If you’ve come across me and would like to set up a speaking engagement I would love to chat!

Yes, that was traumatic. And yes, that was an event, but you can heal. Just like a broken bone can heal, your brain can as well.’ And I think giving yourself grace through the process.
