Interested in booking me for a presentation, keynote, panel, workshop, or interview?

There are few things I enjoy more than connecting with an audience and bringing the room (or Zoom) to life.

With audiences ranging from a room full of female executives,  college students, membership groups, or an event full of donors- raising millions of dollars, I love to ignite and inspire audiences to see their potential and to take action.

Some of The Topics I Talk About

Life Transitions

Sometimes transitions happen because you want them to, sometimes they happen unexpectedly. Either way, it’s possible to feel confident, in-power, and enjoy your new normal. It all depends on how you choose to respond. 

You will learn:

  • How transitions lead to growth

  • The gifts you discover when you release expectations

  • How to accept and feel good while in the messy middle

Growth Mindset

Every day is an opportunity to begin again. When you embrace a growth mindset, you embrace challenges, find lessons and inspiration, and become a life-long learner. A growth mindset can be your key to success.

You will learn: 

  • How to cultivate, grow, and take risks

  • How to persist in tough times

  • How to learn from others by using praise and curiosity

Setting Goals

If you want to get clear on where you are going, why you are going there, and what the result of reaching the destination will be, this talk is for you. What is your motivation for setting a goal? 

You will learn:

  • How to identify your core goals

  • The difference between mastery and performance goals

  • Why celebrating works 

Fundraising 101

Raising money should not be your focus; instead, focus on building relationships. By using genuine conversation, you will know when to invite, propose, or shift your ask.  


You will learn: 

  • How asking questions opens hearts and minds

  • Why listening is the most important skill to develop

  • The value of storytelling
