As a high energy keynote speaker, I feel natural and in my flow when I am inspiring others with real life stories that transform ways of thinking and seeing the way the world works. The ability to show up confident in my own vulnerability while sharing successes and missteps creates a real connection that people relate to. There is nothing cookie cutter when I’m on stage.
Keynotes and Workshops based on the following areas:
- Book Talk – Dreaming In Spanish. I am available to speak about one or more topics from my debut memoir, Dreaming In Spanish: An Unexpected Love Story in Puerto Vallarta. Potential subtopics: white privilege in multicultural, interracial marriages, healing journeys from sexual trauma and substance abuse, learning to live and love on our own terms, uncomfortable conversations, the memoir writing process.
- Diversity and Inclusion in Real Estate. Potential subtopics: social change agents in real estate, disrupting racism in the real estate industry, discrimination and unconscious biases in lead generation, reframing biases, modern-day redlining, changing our business model for changing demographics, uncomfortable conversations, the impact of the Realtor’s role in our communities.
- White Women Doing the Work. Without blame, shame, or guilt, we can focus on facing our racism, building racial resilience, learn to handle racial conflict, gender/race dynamics & understand the oppressed/oppressor. Other topics include learning how to move from colorblind to racially conscious, understanding the impact of whiteness to create positive change, white privilege, intersectionality, raising children, learning to talk about race, and role-playing ways to disrupt racism.
