Speaking and Podcast Interviews
Welcome! I am thrilled to share with you some of my prior speaking engagements and podcast interviews.
Below are a few talks I have given (both in person and virtual) as well as a running list of podcasts I have had the pleasure of being interviewed on.
TEDx - "Take the Leap: The Case For Community"
After graduating from college I struggled to find community. Until I stumbled upon obstacle course racing which opened my eyes up to possibilities and connection.
In this talk "Take the Leap: The Case For Community" I share my personal stories of being in the mud but also the deep connections I made and how they impacted my life.
We are more connected than ever but also more DISconnected.
This talk will leave the viewer thoughtful about how to reach out and create meaningful connections.
There are also some hilarious tales from the mud.
"Chasing of the Athlete"
My most personal talk where I shared my journey of chasing what I thought would make my life complete. My journey is about the chasing of being an athlete, wanting so desperately to be a certain body image and size and weight on the scale. Over the course of two decades, I have been able to find peace and joy in my current body, my imperfections and be proud of all of my accomplishments.
