Who doesn’t want to live the life they crave?

Organizations hire me because I have a proven track record of helping their members soar to new heights. Whether it’s mid-lifers, baby boomers or senior citizens, my presentations provide the authentic tools they need to unblock bad habits, overcome challenges and dismantle roadblocks that prevent them from living life fully and joyously. My audiences leave with ideas, hand-outs and a new feeling of freedom – to achieve, engage, partake and enjoy whatever it is in life that gives them  unconditional joy and happiness.

And how does the sponsoring organization gain? Members are rejuvenated and ready to tackle new projects, provide fresh perspectives and even attend more events.

Come along.

What Do You Get When You Hire Me?

A spotlight on service:

My programs are designed to engage and be relevant to your particular audience and to meet both your needs and your time specifications.

My job is to add value to your event to make it a success.

An engaging presentation:

*  I focus on how to unleash everyday brilliance by using our talents and resources to be the best we each can be.

*  I interweave clear and concise suggestions for putting what we talk about into actual practice.

*  I pepper my talk with humor and illustrate with real life anecdotes – both leading to actionable steps to help you live the life you crave.



We will discuss in advance your programming desires, needs, and audience make-up. Why? So I can customize a presentation that draws great numbers and holds each member of the audience spellbound.

Key notes, break-outs, panel facilitation, workshops and half-day or full day power fueling mini-retreats are what I offer. Customizing for you is not a chore – it’s one of my top priorities and greatest joys.

I work with corporations, sales teams, non-profits, organizations, universities, religious  institutions and social groups. Fee schedule is available upon request.

Speaking Topics

Presently offering these topics:

The Secret to Living Happily Ever After is not about finding Prince Charming or Princess Perfect – although that doesn’t hurt – but about finding instead the power source within you. And it all begins with Controlling Your Own Remote. And it’s all based on one little secret that provides the guiding light along the authentic, proven path to well-being and contentment.

The Secret Life of a Weight-Obsessed Woman centers around my own personal struggle with tying my self-worth to the pointer on the scale. Do you think about food too much? Avoid social situations where you’re apt to over-indulge? Envy those  “skinny bitches” and wonder how they do it? Are you just ten pounds away from happiness? You are not alone. From information to inspiration, my message encourages audiences to break free of self-limiting behaviors and thought patterns that prevent them from operating at full throttle.

It was such a delight having you speak to our group. We’ve heard nothing but raves from our members. You held them spellbound throughout your entire presentation. Rarely are they so totally attentive. You made us laugh as we learned and your humor made difficult subject matters easy to digest. Our friends’ enthusiastic recommendations left us anticipating great things and you exceeded all of our expectations.

Your presentation was very well thought out! Very timely and informative to many. You were very well prepared and my Senior group was delighted with you presentation.

Thanks so much for sharing with us some delightful and delicious insights.

Gentle, humorous and generous. Full of love and soulfulness, with just the perfect amount of true and contagious wit.


You said what I feel, but you say it better. What a great talent you have…I don’t need a therapist as much now.
