When my 8 year old Rachel died I donated her organs and I was asked on many occasions to speak to organizations and families about the difference Organ Donation made in my recovery. I became the National Spokesperson for Organ Donation in 1999 and was reacquainted with my love of public speaking. It was such a natural self expression for me to take a tragic story and inspire and motivate others to overcome adversity in their lives.
I have had the profound honour and privilege to have appeared on Vision Television, CITYTV, CBC, CTV, CTS-Rhonda London Live, and Winnipeg's Women's Television Network and Toronto's 680 and Durham's 1350CKDO and Windsor Radio shows as well as being featured in magazines and local newspapers Toronto Sunday Sun and Toronto Star.
I have had numerous speaking engagements including a Women's Retreat at the Rotary Club in Uxbridge, a Women's Business Luncheon series Let's Do Lunch in Durham Region, Charity Golf Tournaments, Local Durham Networking Groups, Church organizations, High School Leadership Groups, Sick Kids Hospital and other local Hospitals, Organ Donation Memorial, and the Advanced Executive Administration conference in Toronto. I am a founding member of a local Women's Business Networking group and I have been approached to appear on a new pilot talk show in California.
I am available for local and international public speaking engagements. I offer customized programs for your event to inspire and empower everyone in the room through humour and authentic sharing.
