Upcoming Events

Publishing a book is exciting. Even more exciting is sharing it and its message to build other up, build community, and build connections of support and strength. I work with groups and individuals of all ages and abilities, share my message, and provide practical tips and action steps. Audiences walk away with a connected and confident spirit. 

I have developed several delivery methods of teaching, training, coaching, and sharing writing techniques, publishing options, and restorative nature of writing to heal.

Workshops/Training Events

Large group? Small group? Adults? Kids? I work with all ages, all abilities in hands-on, interactive, and supportive workshops to build confidence and build community. Topics are wide open and based on request and have included:


  • Write (Right) to Heal

  • Mid-Life High Life

  • What's the Big Deal? (Why Write?)

  • Publishing Pathways

  • Failure as an Option

  • Goal Setting/Action Plans for Life Goals

All workshop participants leave with tools to enhance, improve, and sustain a life of balance and wellness.

Speaking Engagments

Through storytelling and personal connection, I share my story about my cancer journey and how it relates to ANYONE trudging through adversity and trauma in life. I share coping mechanisms, wellness practices, and practical, mental health tips to live a life healthfully and wholly. Be prepared to laugh. And cry. It is whiplash, after all.

Personal Coaching

Focused, personalized one-on-one coaching for goal setting, overall health and wellness, and sustained support for achieving those goals. Confidential, convenient scheduling, and customized to YOU.

Woodland Retreats

Research shows disconnection from life chaos and connection to a nature increases clarity of thought, encourages creativity, and biologically detoxifies the body. We're working on offering wellness retreats for those wanting to just get away, writers' retreats for aspiring authors, and nature retreats for more physical activities through the woodlands. STAY TUNED!
