I’m a big believer in having fun and taking good care of ourselves.  I also believe in pushing past obstacles. My entertaining keynotes are full of useful tips to help your audience do these things. 

I know from experience what can happen when we don’t.

When I was in college, I had major jaw surgery for TMJ caused from stress. More recently, I suffered from burnout and depression as a result of my dear mom’s decade-plus ongoing struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.

That’s why I love to speak to groups about stress, and how we can manage that better so we can experience more joy in our lives.

If you want to help your employees lighten up and manage their stress better, call me.

If you want to reduce burnout and encourage the well-being of your team, call me.

If you want to encourage your team to push past obstacles and have more fun, call me.

Whether you need someone to kick off your conference with a bang, or close it out on a high note, I can help.

And everything is customized to address the challenges and stressors of your organization.

Happy clients include USPS, Sharp Healthcare, Project Management Institute, and many others.
