My speaking style is engaging and interactive, with a balance of hard-hitting and inspiring stories, data, and calls to action. My years of training and experience in public speaking, and teaching college courses, have equipped me to be fully present, relatable, and adaptable with every audience. Whether you are seeking a training, workshop, keynote address, panelist, or guest speaker, I will work with you to ensure that your objectives are covered.

I speak on topics related to:

  • Sexual assault on college campuses
