PRofessional Speaker

As a professional speaker and trainer, I've had the unique privilege of sharing my experiences with both students and professionals. It's fascinating to see how authenticity and courage can inspire people from every walk of life. My motto is simple. You are never too young to start telling your story and you are never too old to start owning your story. Over the last ten years, I've led keynote presentations and workshop experiences for thousands of participants from various organizations.

I got my start sharing Spoken Word Poetry. To this day, it's still one of the most unique features I bring to each speaking engagement. When I deliver a keynote presentation, facilitate a corporate training experience, host an event or lead a workshop my goal is the same. I want to reach people in the most meaningful way possible and inspire them to live life to the fullest.
