Getting to Know You
What topics do you enjoy speaking on the most?
One of my favorite topics currently is Leveling Up in Your Business. That talk not only gives listeners actionable steps on how to grow and expand their business, but it also addresses the importance of openly talking about our missteps and being #vulnerable. There’s also a fun bit in there about what happens when people think you’re selling cupcakes, but it’s only t-shirts instead.
What topic would you love to tackle next?
Next up I want to dive into the psychology of weddings — really examine why people get so weird when it comes to weddings (both couples and those around them) and try to understand what’s behind that behavior. Having that understanding will allow us to serve our clients better and it will also *hopefully* help us not take things so personally sometimes.
How would you describe your speaking style?
I’m energetic when I speak and also draw upon a lot of my life experience to give real-world examples. I’m big on humor and coming off as fun, down-to-earth and approachable. I want people to feel like they know me after they see me give a talk and feel like they can come up to me afterwards with a hug.
What has been your favorite speaking engagement to date?
I spoke at NACE Orlando in Spring 2019 and had a blast! They were a really great group of professionals and had wonderful energy. The event was also at the brand new Margaritaville resort, so the location wasn’t too bad either!
When heading to a wedding industry conference, I never leave home without my….
Colorful sneakers! Far from critical, I know, but they’ve sort of become my trademark so I never leave home without them!
Where would you love to speak next?
I would love to get some international speaking opportunities on my resume, so I am definitely ready to travel! Also hoping to snag some West Coast speaking gigs in 2020.
