speaking

I’m going to be 100% honest: in my experience as a featured speaker I get just a little bit nervous before going out on the stage or standing up in front of any audience. I find that by doing Jumping Jacks I get my blood flowing, and by taking a few deep breaths my jitters are calmed.

Personally, I think that a speaker should have a laser-like focus on their audience’s needs. So, whenever I’m invited to give a speech my focus is always on imparting every bit of knowledge I have to my audience in an energetic, dynamic, and engaging way. I enjoy inspiring my audiences and providing skills and strategies the audience members can take away and easily use when they go back to their workplaces or back to their families.

I like to make my audiences think and laugh, encouraging them to make positive changes, not only for themselves, but for the children they serve. I take pride in furthering the audience’s abilities to develop skills, so they become masters in their fields.

As an integrative speech-language pathologist and child development professional, my speaking engagements have taken me around the world, from my home on the West Coast of the United States all the way to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I’ve been a speaker at the Autism Society of America in New York City and a featured speaker for the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in Stockholm, Sweden.
