Storytelling is at the heart of my work in disability activism. I’m passionate about speaking and interacting with groups of all sizes and kinds, at any age range, either virtually or in-person. Topics I speak about range from practical presentations on using social media for effective advocacy to deeply personal conversations about my experiences as a disabled woman.
