AFTER A 16-YEAR CAREER AS A DANCER AND MASTER FITNESS TRAINER, I NEARLY LOST MY LEG IN A HORRIFIC MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT. THIS LIFE-ALTERING EXPERIENCE INSPIRED ME TO BECOME A MOTIVATIONAL KEYNOTE SPEAKER AND TO SHOW OTHERS HOW THEY CAN TURN ANY TRAGEDY INTO REMARKABLE OPPORTUNITY.
My keynotes focus on transformation and on changing core beliefs, whether speaking to business groups, young people or anyone who has gone through a serious accident, injury or illness. I enjoy empowering people to achieve whatever goal they have in mind, personally or professionally. Sharing my own experience, I demonstrate how to get the most out of life with acceptance, a strong mental attitude and a supportive team.

No one could walk away from hearing your humble story of strength and courage without reflecting on the lessons you learned and drawing on them. Your speech and the conversation you encouraged with the new members of the Dress for Success Professional Women’s Group set precisely the right tone for our year-long program of workshops designed to give these more than deserving women a network of support and the tools to succeed.
Every woman left the room last Tuesday evening emboldened to work hard and achieve her goals. In their words….
“I learned that things I’m passionate about I fight for until I get the results I want. ex. career, personal life and accomplishments.”
“I learned that I am on a journey of resilience rather than just endurance.”
“I took away the insight that I have no excuses for giving up following my dreams and aspirations.”
“It was inspirational, focusing on overcoming adversity and thriving/blossoming personally and professionally afterwards in one’s ‘new normal”, even though the “normal” bears no resemblance to one’s previous life/dreams.”
Thank you for giving so much of yourself and so passionately supporting the mission of Dress for Success.

“It was such a pleasure to meet you today – thank you for speaking at our group! Your talk was inspirational and was a beautiful testament to the triumph of your dedication, persistence, personal resilience, and strong fortitude, to name just a few of the amazing traits that allowed you to both survive and overcome such a profound trauma.
Your speaking was wonderful. Your ability to weave humor into a very serious topic without minimizing the profound difficulty was beautiful. You have every potential for great success in public speaking, and I will absolutely keep you top of mind for any venues that might be appropriate. Your accent is a great bonus for public speaking, and adds to your otherwise delightful and powerful persona.”
