Speaking Engagements and School Presentations:

I love to present in front of groups of all ages. I have tailored an inspirational and entertaining presentation built around my two children's books: Lucy and Chester's Amazing Adventures and Steve the Alien to grade school students. I also have a presentation for teens and adults where I share inspiring stories and valuable lessons that I have learned since following my intuition and stepping away from my family business 10 years ago into the unknown. letting my heart guide me into writing, acting, filmmaking, and speaking. I truly love empowering others to step out of their own comfort zones and have the track record to help. I also currently have 2 workshops: "An Introduction to Balance" and "Unleash Your Dreams" that I love to present to adults.
