Helping Parents, Teachers, and Kids Thrive

Speaking

Be inspired.

If you’re seeking an inspirational speaker who offers heart-felt child development and professional development programs, then you’ll find what you’re looking for here.

With 25 years of professional speaking experience, I’ve provided hundreds of parent and teacher trainings filled with love, laughter, and learning.

WHAT are these programs about?

These live events are designed to both educate and motivate.  They help educators, childcare providers, and parents develop more mindful ways of improving our children’s mental health and social-emotional well-being.

During each speaking event, you can expect:

  • A lively, interactive presentation or workshop
  • An approach that is both light-hearted and serious-minded
  • Real-life, practical strategies that you can use right away

WHY would these programs be useful?

The benefits to your family, school, or organization will include:

  • Greater ability to recognize stress points and how to respond to them
  • More practical tools for helping students who are struggling
  • Greater confidence and comfort in facing life challenges with kids
  • More fun and joy – both during and after the program!

HOW do these programs work?

All programs can be adapted for public or professional audiences.  Each program can be tailored to meet your organization’s particular needs.  And each program is offered in 3 sizes:

  • Brief Training or Keynote (1 – 1.5 hours)
  • Full Training (3 hours)
  • Extended Training (6 hours)

When working with schools, I offer follow-up coaching sessions with staff to ensure effective implementation of the skills covered in the original in-service trainings.  These online consultations include live Q&A discussions, demonstrations, and guided practice.

Standard speaking fees apply, though they may be reduced or waived for certain community or charity events.

Bottom line, I care deeply that the information I provide can make a difference in kids’ lives.

So, let’s see what kind of a difference we can make together!
