Public Speaking - Unscripted

Facilitating | Educating | Presenting

When I am invited to speak - my first goal is to create a Safe Space that fosters Connection, Collaboration & Creativity.

I listen to the needs and desires of the group & craft evidence based, engaging content to meet your needs. I use my lived experience & collective learnings to weave information from multiple disciplines into the veterinary experience.

My Ultimate goals are build supportive community, expand awareness, provide customized skills, tools, resources and practical solutions to what is considered a  'Wicked problem' of burnout and mental health challenges in the veterinary community
