Irreverent Speaker, Daring Actress, Brilliant Poet
For the last 18 years I have been speaking at colleges, conferences, performing stand-up and a one-women show all over the country and internationally. I have spoken to groups as diverse as 40,000 scientists, doctors and researchers at an international conference in Switzerland to little old ladies at a rural Lutheran church in New Jersey. They say you need to find a niche in the speaking world. Who is your audience? My audience is anyone who is looking for a combination of humor, entertainment and inspiration.
Surviving the Weekend:
“Can You Drink Responsibly?”
Through humor and audience participation I examine: Warning Signs of Alcohol Abuse HOW To Drink Responsibly HOW Attitude Affects Risky Behavior HOW Drugs & Alcohol Affect Sexual Decisions.I give a personal narrative of surviving my own problems with alcohol including an alcohol related sexual assault. I talk about how my dependence on alcohol and my decision to quit drinking in my first year of college. I do not advocate abstinence from alcohol but rather informed choice responsibility and basic awareness.
