Her style of speaking is one of authenticity, honesty and connection, which reaches out to her audience on a whole hearted level, connecting with people and giving them a part of herself so that they can grow through their adversity, by sharing her experience of sight loss over the past 25 years and the additional struggles that she faced including addictive behaviours such as drink dependency and anorexia which were all linked to the psychological impact of sight loss. She also speaks of her successful career as a Professional Sculptor, her advocacy work changing the public’s perception of the blind and visually impaired, her spiritual pathway to self discovery, her years of travel, her love for being a musician, playing piano, guitar, singing and song writing, her forthcoming book and the board sports she enjoys such as surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding.

With a positive, enlightening, whole hearted style her speaking will leave your audience inspired and uplifted, truly a story of flying in the face of adversity.
