In 9th grade I won an oratory contest at school. Of course I only had 3 other competitors and a charmed audience of parents but still...
You might never guess it because I'm generally known for being quiet, but it turns out that I give a pretty captivating presentation. I also love taking photos so my visual content is abundant and diverse. My talks are often about my adventures. But within those advenures are the anecdotes of risk and reward, consequence and failure, and how all of that plays into life.
I've been the keynote speaker at numerous organizations and events including: Utah State University (Logan), Outdoor Industries Women's Coalition (OIWC), Hamilton College, Colgate University, SUNY Plattsburgh, and the Adirondack International Mountainfest to name a few.
Contact me if you're interested in having me speak at your event, conference, school, or office. I have a range of topics and am happy to customize a presentation.
