Do you see this smile on my face? It's because I LOVE teaching & training. 

  • I'm known for creating keynotes and speaking events that entertain, educate and create meaningful conversations - whether it's an audience of 30 or 3,000.
  • I LOVE talking to leaders in business, healthcare & education.
  • I THRIVE when talking to medical providers and healthcare organizations.
  • I'm FULFILLED speaking with educators and professionals.

My wheelhouse is organizational vitality, trauma-informed care, healthy communication and resilience. I talk about topics that feel tricky, difficult and hard to access - because, you know what? We're human and we ALL struggle with these issues.

  • Folks want tools that are actionable - they want to know what TO DO. 
  • We CAN thrive as organizations when we work together & listen.
  • We CAN mitigate the effects of trauma by focusing on resilience and other buffering forces such as connection and relational health!
  • We CAN create compassionate spaces with connected, relational leaders.

My work focuses on recognizing and responding to stress, overwhelm, burnout & trauma and mitigating adversity by responding with efficacious resilience-based interventions.

This work truly is THE MOST IMPORTANT MEDICINE - for you, for your organization, for the deep work of transformation.

If you're in a professional sphere that impacts the lives of children and families (think healthcare, early childhood or behavioral health) and want to move from understanding "what" trauma is, how it presents, and what it looks like and grow into knowing "what to do" about it - let's set up a time to talk noW!

Or if you're an organization that wants to build vitality for your organization and move beyond self-care, let's talk!

Thank you for providing such a safe and accepting space for us to continue to bring our whole person to our interactions and our lives. I do believe this will be one of those seminal moments all of us will grow from, and make further commitments in support of each other.

Thank you for hosting a wonderful training for our behavioral health team. You hit the mark 100%! It has definitely started the self-care conversation among teams and helped us all to acknowledge what we have all been through over the last year. 100% of employees that responded with feedback said the training was relevant and helpful! Thank you again, this training was definitely needed!
