Spreading Mental Health Knowledge in a fun, easy to understand, and informed way, is one of my passions.
I have years of experience facilitating trainings in a variety of settings and leading speaking engagements, panel discussions, and educational groups on a variety of topics. I serve as a trainer with the Illinois Coalition against Sexual Assault, and have experience speaking to a variety of age groups and populations. In my career I have trained law enforcement, military units, child advocacy workers and volunteers, foster parents and caregivers, education staff, hospital staff, new professionals, seasoned professionals, inmates, addiction recovery groups, sex offenders, adult women, teen groups and more. I also hold a certification in compassion fatigue.
I have also been a guest on several podcast episodes (linked below) and have provided quotes and social media takeovers for other organizations.
To inquire about learning opportunities, please contact my office and I will help to customize an event or speaking engagement to your needs . I am also available to provide opportunities virtually utilizing whatever platform you use.

- Postpartum and perinatal mental health
