Speaking


Being in a room of interesting, passionate people is one of my favorite things in the world.

I love drawing people out, helping them recognize their own strengths and wisdom, and inspiring groups to commit to each other and their work.

For those reasons, I offer these presentations for your group to consider.

A note on fees: Although I have official speaking fees, I do give consideration to activism and non-profit events on a reduced or pro bono basis. If you’re looking for an inspiring, sincere, and enthusiastic presenter, let’s talk!
