Speaking and Workshops

I speak to audiences and motivate them to embrace change and take the leap towards well-being. I inspire individuals to find the opportunity in each moment. I motivate young leaders to challenge the status quo around hardships and systems involvement and take action towards creating a positive world. I speak with people about how to create balance through the elements and work more collaboratively. I facilitate human service professionals’ understanding of how to work compassionately with families and children from all backgrounds. I teach best practices in trauma informed youth development. I have spoken across the country about creating work-life balance.

Every time I speak, my intention is to leave audiences feeling inspired to reflect and believe that change and transformation is possible.

My inspirational presentations include meaningful stories, humor, real-world examples, research, and realistic take-aways. I am often described as full of energy that is “refreshing.” I love to motivate and breathe wholeness into the ways we relate to our community, our world and most importantly ourselves.

Power Confident: A User’s guide

What could be more important for our future well-being than to take conscious and skillful ownership or our power? Gaining an understanding of power—in particular, the connection between a healthy sense of personal power and a positive use of power, is one of the most profound and important challenges we face in our life and in our personal growth. When we become power confident we have an understanding of the right use of power. We are better able to understand the impact and the role it plays in our lives. Join me on a journey to understand how to use power with ethics, heart and soul!

The Five Friends of Group Development

Family. Work. Worship. Play. So much of life happens in groups. But often it is within groups that we have experienced our greatest hurt. We arrive in groups just as we enter life – alone. Being an effective leader includes developing an environment in which members feel included and appreciated. In this talk I will present the five friends of group development- a simple framework for developing a group dynamic that recognizes each member as unique and important to the whole. You will learn to use your power and leadership towards ensuring that the group is supportive, uplifting, and productive.

Compassion Satisfaction: Beating Burnout and Compassion Fatigue

Does your job call on you to care for others more than you care for yourself? “Compassion Fatigue” can lead to increased cynicism and reduce your levels of satisfaction both at work and in your home life. Burnout and compassion fatigue can happen to anyone – even in the best of work environments. Building resilience and developing strategies to foster a sense of hope and optimism about the future is key. In this talk, I will provide you with the tools for self care as well as concrete steps to help you improve your job satisfaction.

Group Genius: Overcoming the Fear and Stress of Collaboration
