Speaking and Teaching
Conference Presentations: I was a keynote speaker for the Indianapolis Happiness Project kick-off event and Fiitbloggin' 2016. I have also been a speaker at the Because Kids Count Conference (BKCC), ATTACh Conference, Crossroads of America Adoption Conference, North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACAC) annual conference, Joint Council on International Children's Services (JCICS) annual child welfare symposium, National Council for Adoption (NCFA) conference, Adoption Knowledge Associates (AKA) conference, and the Adoptive Parents Committee (APC) conference to name a few. I am currently accepting invitations for 2017 conferences and keynote engagements.
Corporate & Professional: My background includes seven years serving as co-founder and executive at an international adoption agency. I have also done some work in Human Resources, and I grew up (literally) in a small business. There are many parts of my executive position that I miss, but I also understand the unique challenges it includes. Group dynamics can greatly impact the effectiveness and efficiency of a business. Employers who wish to change the workplace environment, increase employee satisfaction, increase customer satisfaction, improve efficiency, and eliminate unnecessary conflicts often benefit from team building seminars and education. Every company is unique and I tailor my approach to working with you and your business. For information visit the Executive Counseling page.
Motivational & Informational: I very much enjoy teaching to groups of all sizes. In some groups, we simply sit in a circle, while in other venues I am on stage with a mic. Many times groups can have me share with their group via webinar to reduce travel costs. I enjoy speaking about psychology, parenting, whole-hearted living, and conscious relationships.
Resource & Expert: I have been a repeat guest or guest host on several radio shows including Co-Parenting Matters, Creating a Family, Adoption Perspectives, and Pete the Planner radio shows. I have also led multiple webinars for Adoptive Families magazine and been interviewed by local news stations, appearing both on morning shows and prime time news.
