Speaking Engagements
(virtual or in-person)

Education comes in all forms. I work with public and private schools, summer camp, community organizations, religious institutions, and others who want to create customized learning experiences designed for their parent and professional staff/educator community. These sessions can be topical or more generalized parenting or educational content. In the parenting space, my goal is to help parents develop a more connected relationship with their tw/teen, learn solutions to a variety of parenting challenges, and ultimately live a more fulfilled family life! In the educator space, my goal is to help educators (formal and informal) navigate their educational environments more successfully and help educators build the skills necessary to be responsive and adaptive to all of their constituents (students, parents, colleagues, administrators, and leadership).

A key organizational benefit to offering these types of educational opportunities is that it forms and supports parent or professional communities so they understand that they are not alone in the work that they are doing either at home or in the 'office'. When parents and professionals bond over learning experiences provided by organizations they engage with, they are also more likely to volunteer, promote, and donate those organizations!  

Speaking Engagements Can Be**: (in-person and virtual)

- 1 or 2 hour one-time sessions

- 1/2 or full day sessions

- Multi-day sessions or Weekend Retreat/Shabbaton

** Pricing is based upon type and length of presentation as well as travel costs if applicable.
