Appearances

My favorite part of what I do is sharing my experiences and expertise with others so that they too can be empowered and inspired to create a fulfilling life and be at their best. Adventure and movement have been so influential in shaping my life and who I am. I love being a resource and passing on what I have learned.

 
 

Speaking

I speak to groups of all demographics about a variety of topics. I will work with you and your organization to create a motivational, inspirational, and educational talk that will best serve your audience. I have spoken to groups of entrepreneurs, kids' bike clubs, high school students, women's mountain bike camps, BLM/Forest Service workers, and given open presentations for members of the community at various venues.

Example Topics:

The Connection Between Adventure and Life: overcoming challenges, goal setting, building confidence, cultivating the "athlete's mindset," defining success, perseverance, facing fear and uncertainty, etc
