Public Speaking

Public speaking gives me the opportunity to raise awareness about disability and inclusion through the telling of my personal story.  I always try to impart the message that enjoying life is a matter of perspective, and ALL of life’s challenges are opportunities to change, to learn, to grow.  If interested in booking me for a public speaking engagement of any sort, please message me here
