Upcoming Workshops & Events

I work with businesses and individuals who want to embrace their weird.

I empower them to rediscover their authentic voice, be more compassionate to themselves, and more inclusive of others. I do this through keynote performances, workshops, retreats, personalized marketing consultations, and via my podcast, Badass Creatives.

I am currently developing my book and signature keynote performance, Embrace Yr Weird, which will be launching in Spring 2019.

“It was an absolute pleasure having you at iRetreat. It was honestly one of the BEST sessions we've personally attended; I learned so much about Instagram to take-away and implement immediately, and know other attendees did as well.”
