As a Speaker, I have developed and presented seminars and workshops for a variety of audiences. I have spoken at state and national education conferences from coast to coast; human resources and writers’ conferences; workshops for mental health care professionals, hospice volunteers, and Art for Healing participants; seminars for senior adults, and school district institutes.

Currently, I teach writing classes in journaling and memoir, independently and through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at California State University, Bakersfield.

I design and deliver Custom Workshops and Seminars with these objectives in mind:

  • ·         Teaching concepts and skills
  • ·         Nurturing individuals and teams
  • ·         Transforming lives and workplaces
  • ·         Respecting all participants and their experience and knowledge


Why choose Connections & Conversations

          even greater productivity.

    for a happier, more-healthy workplace.
