Getting to Know You
What topics do you enjoy speaking on the most?
I love educating wedding pros on how to make their businesses more LGBTQ-inclusive, as well as share my insights on submitting your work to publishers.
What topic would you love to tackle next?
I’m very drawn to the demographic characteristics of Gen Z. It’s a very gender fluid generation, and seamlessly ties into my LGBTQ+ diversity expertise.
How would you describe your speaking style?
Informative and passionate. I get right to the point and pack my presentations not only with great information but easy-to-digest takeaways to implement it. People tell me that they can see how passionate I am, particularly when I’m speaking on LGBTQ+ inclusivity, and it fuels their excitement for the topic.
What has been your favorite speaking engagement to date?
The Knot Pro / WeddingWire Edu workshop in Cleveland. It was an absolutely beautifully designed experience, the 200+ crowd was engaging, and I received such excited feedback from the attendees implementing what I shared into their businesses.
When heading to a wedding industry conference, I never leave home without my….
A medley of dongles! I’ve learned that you never know what type of tech situation you’re going to walk into, so I have a variety of dongles to ensure my Macbook Air can connect with the setup.
Where would you love to speak next?
I would love to get a few more international gigs underneath my belt, and would be thrilled to head to Europe again.
