As a speaker, I have presented programs to a wide variety of audiences ranging from Fortune 500 companies, hospitals, mothers' groups, universities, and non-profits. 

 

I have taught hundreds of hospital and corporate classes on weight management as well as other health and motivational topics for clients like Kaiser Permanente and Sutter Health, among others.  I would love to talk with you about how I can help you make your event a success.

 

Programs can be adapted to seminar or workshop formats, depending on group size. All topics can also be tailored for Christian, faith-based audiences upon request as well.

 

Successful seminars presented to other groups include:

Weight Whys 10-week workshop series
This powerful teaching series will cover the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of weight management as detailed in my book, Weight Whys. Participants will read the book over the course of the ten weeks and come to class weekly for teaching, question/answer time, and small group discussion. Participants will learn clinically accurate health education, psychological techniques for behavioral change, complete writing exercises for personal insights, and be encouraged by this support group environment.

Creating the Life You Really Want
How can you create the life you really want when you can barely make it through your to-do list? Clarifying your vision, making a plan, and building a support system are some of the tools this workshop will equip you with to make authentic fulfillment happen in today's busy world.

Building Healthy Families
How is it possible to maintain a healthy family in the age of drive-thru dinner and X-box? Learn the simple changes parents can make to ensure a future of wellness for their children & themselves. This workshop will give you the tools and motivation you need to create a healthy environment so your family can thrive.

Becoming a Person of Excellence
Excellence is not about being perfect; it's about doing the best you can to use your gifts and abilities to contribute to this world in a positive way. This seminar will focus on how appreciating your unique qualities, setting a high standard for yourself, and having a positive attitude will help you enjoy the journey as you pursue your potential.  

Identity: Navigating Your Journey Through Motherhood
Motherhood is full of life-changing moments and constant selflessness. This seminar is all about seeing the beauty of growing as a person through your role as a mom. Learn how to take care of yourself and frame your identity in a positive way so you can bring your best to your calling as one of the most powerful influences in your child's life. 

Created For a Purpose
In this faith-based message for Christian audiences, I will share my testimony of the hope and healing I found through my relationship with God after a challenging childhood. I'll describe my journey of coming to faith as a college student after months of researching the evidence for Christianity, as well as my initial struggle of marrying my spiritual beliefs with my intellect. You will leave this talk with the reassurance of how deeply you are loved by the God who created you and a renewed sense of how you can share the love of Christ with a broken world.

God's Plan for a Healthy Life
In John 10:10, Jesus said "I have come so that you may have life, and have it more abundantly." God wants you to be victorious in every area, especially your health! You will leave this program with the Biblical principles needed to discover the abundant health that God has for you as well as the strategies and inspiration you need to achieve it.
