Presentation for Parents on How to Get Kids Reading

Research shows that if students are not reading on grade level before leaving elementary school, they experience less success in their other subjects and in future grade levels. One of the best ways for students to improve their reading skills is to READ.

I will share ten tips that will help parents, grandparents, and caregivers encourage their kids to put down their devices and pick up a book instead.

This presentation can last 10-15 minutes and is perfect for a PTA/PTO meeting.

Presentation for Women’s Groups on Reinventing Myself

I share my journey of becoming an award-winning author after being downsized from a corporate position I loved.  As a former teacher, newspaper reporter, and television producer, I used my previous jobs and experiences to jumpstart and sustain my next career. The same strategies I used to become a successful author can be replicated by others to lead to a new endeavor.

This presentation lasts about 20-30 minutes.
