Public Events

As children learn, they grow, change and experience the world in new ways.

They're empowered. Excited. 

 

When adults make time for education, we're the same way. We learn. We connect. We walk away with a simple strategy that makes a big difference.

 

Join me at the following events, all FREE and open to the public

*(and please contact me if you are interested in bringing a workshop or presentation  to YOUR school or organization)*
