Speaking and Teaching

I have had the pleasure of leading retreats and speaking for 25 years

Weekend women’s retreats, parish-wide weekends, clergy conferences, and leadership council retreats are a few examples. I have also led retreats for civic organizations that needed some time away together to make some changes and gather inspiration for ways to move forward.

I have also been honored to be a keynote speaker at several large conferences.  I bring my years as a teacher and speaker as well as my love for all things creative to my retreats and speaking.  I know how to build community and create a safe space for participants to relax and enjoy.
