Business, Church or Club Events
My personal and professional focus is to honor God by inviting my audiences to laugh, cry and do something different in their lives. I have delivered presentations for 20 all the way to 1,000+ audience members.
I enjoy speaking immensely because I love to entertain an audience. I can tailor content to your specific event or offer one of my current talks: "Reluctant Motherhood", "Life (with toddler) Rules", "Live Well” and "Frog to Fabulous: Find Your Mama Mojo!".
I am focused on spending time with my two small children in this season of life, so I have limited availability for speaking. I request a minimum $75 speaking fee for any engagement to cover child care and my sanity. We can determine talk length and pricing based upon your needs and budget preferences. It is more important to me to use my gifts to encourage even one person than to make a quick buck.
I am comfortable speaking to religious or secular audiences and can offer a thirty minute presentation all the way up to a full day retreat event.
Business WorkshopsI can kick your sales and customer service teams into action with my wit, viciously funny training humor and proven techniques.
My twenty-five year professional history includes real estate, property management, retail, restaurant, car sales(oh yeah...used cars too), production music, small business and life coaching from Chicago, Denver, Arizona and back to Indiana again.
I developed, delivered and monitored telephone sales, customer service and leasing training curriculum for a regional property management company of over 100 properties and 300 employees for five years.
I have spoken for the Chicago Apartment Association (CAA), property management individual and corporate trainings, Rotary Club, Toastmasters, Small Business Networking groups and Women Business Owners of Michiana (WBOM).
Topics Include: "From zzz to ZIP!" How to talk about yourself and your business in a way that your audience is interested enough to hear more. Telephone and Sales Training with a twist. How to market your product and build your business. How to use body language and questions in an effective manner. How to shop and learn from your competition, and more.
Church Events and SermonsI can encourage and grow your women's, youth or singles ministry with an inspiring, humorous and authentic message. I'm not a polished church lady, but I play one one TV. (No I don't.) I do love Jesus and have been in love with him for about eight years. I can candidly share God's impact in my many adventures and fiascos through single life, marriage and parenthood with humor, directness and grace. I particularly enjoy speaking to youth and singles about sex, abstinence (from a previously worldly point of view) and everything in between.
My spiritual journey has been a long and winding one beginning with a Unitarian Universalist background and moving into a liberal Christian faith today. I have deep respect for a variety of beliefs and can adapt my delivery accordingly.
I have spoken for Granger Community Church's singles events, women's retreat and bible studies. I performed dramas and videos for them for five years with audiences up to 5,000 people any given weekend.
I have spoken in Unitarian Universalist Churches on the topic of my faith journey "Curious Life, Messy Spirituality" and to a youth group about how this formerly promiscuous girl hopes her two daughters choose abstinence.
I have special interest in sharing my personal stories as they pertain to unmarried single life struggles, moving from no faith to the Christian faith, what I learned from finally choosing abstinence, and how choosing to have faith can be a tricky but rewarding road.
Clubs and OrganizationsI can deliver an entertaining keynote or intro customized to your members and industry. My strengths are speaking to industries centered on customers and the comical chaos that can ensue.
I also speak to Parenting groups. I have spoken for Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS), Mothers and More, and Parents as Teachers (PAT) and participated in the "Listen To Your Mother Show" in NW Indiana two years in a row.
- "Reluctant Motherhood" How I went from never wanting to children to REALLY wanting them including fears every parent has, growing a strong marriage, miscarriage and more.
- "Life (with toddler) Rules" Staying sane with two or more toddlers at a time, difficult pregnancy, and post partum depression.
- "Live Well" Our family's life motto and how we apply it in our chaotic daily life.
- "Frog to Fabulous: Recapture Your Mama Mojo!” Finding your personal passion, joy, beauty and vivre amidst motherhood’s challenging delights.
