I’m a former special educator and I love meeting teachers and students.
My presentations are interactive and tailored to the school’s and students’ needs. Presentations typically range from 20-30 minutes followed by a 15-20 minute Q&A.
My presentation can be adapted based on grade band and the individual teachers' needs for Elementary and Middle School classes.
It focuses on how I used reading and writing as an outlet throughout my childhood but never thought I could be a real writer when I grew up.
As I share the discoveries I made that led me down my current path, I prompt students to consider their own hopes and dreams for the future, think about how they might cultivate their own unique gifts in their communities, and empower them to think about the stories they have collected in their own lives that are uniquely theirs to tell.

"I want to thank you again – my students are very appreciative. Your encouragement meant so much to them – we certainly have some future authors in the group and hearing from you has inspired them all the more."

Thank you so much for chatting with us. The kids were so happy to hear from an author and your examples were so relevant to their own writing work for this unit. You covered so much of what they were wondering and wanting tips on.
