About Me

Building Connections

Whether I am speaking to one person or to a room full of people seeking information, I try to build connections. Listening to your needs and what you may have concerns with, learning ways to help you, and sharing it with others is my focus.   Whether as a keynote speaker or a workshop leader, I help break through the boundaries that may be limiting you and get you ready to shape your future. Let me help you move from the world of yesterday's sadness and regrets to the world of tomorrow's victories.

My Philosophy for the Future

 I enjoy people and listening about both their good times and troubling times. Building a reputation of helping people through loss, grief and unexpected change has become my mission- my passion- my purpose. I like helping others find solutions to learn to smile again and find a new calmness in their lives. In discovering a new positivness, anything is possible! 

Workshops and Keynotes

As a #1  best selling  author, and speaker, I will bring new life and connection to your next event.  Presentations include helping others through different types of loss, Opening communication between caregivers and their loved ones, and learning to work with difficult people in a possitive way.

Smile Again

What is in the past that is holding you in the present and keeping you from accessing your brightest future?  When we experience a life-changing event it is often hard to move forward. 

This presentation is built on becoming unstuck following that event and learning to move forward with new goals.  Learn ways to address your emotions and to grow from the change in a positive direction towards the future.

Growing Through Illness Together

Presentations and support groups build connections with others who may be dealing with the same issues as you are. Questions are answered and opinions voiced that let you know you are not alone.  Talking and working together, problems can be solved. 

Growing Through an Illness Together focus on self-care for the caregiver and care receiver and ways of having the discussions we often try to avoid.  

Caring for a loved one is difficult. Whether it is a parent, grandparent or spouse, it can be emotional.  This presentation encourages caregivers and those receiving care to talk about their wishes and concerns. To learn ways to make final decisions, and to care for yourself while caring for others.  

Dealing with Negative People in a Positive way


Interactions between difficult people  can be a source of tension. Improper, rushed, or ineffective communication by the provider or irrational demands and noncompliance from the patient can create an environment that makes communication and treatment difficult for both parties.

In some cases, difficult patients can trigger strong emotions in medical providers — causing them to become angry in return — ultimately avoiding contact and refusing further care. Not all sources of difficulty come from anger. Medical care can be negatively impacted by fear, sadness, anxiety, depression, and a general lack of clear communication
