I have spoken at a variety of events including:

  • 40 Days for Life Kick-off Rally
  • Pregnancy Resource Center Banquets
  • Women’s retreats
  • Grade School and High School assemblies
  • Conference workshops
  • Pregnancy and Infant Loss Memorial Services
  • Respect Life parish events

It is best to contact me at least 3 months in advance.   For conferences that involve more than one day, 6 months advance notice is recommended.  Events occurring sooner may be scheduled, depending on availability.

Speaking fees will vary depending on the length of presentation and the event venue.  One half of the fee is required at the time of signing the contract.  The balance is due on the day of the event.  Travel accommodations, such as airfare, hotel, meals and taxi, must also be provided by the event sponsor.  Because my disability,  I travel with a friend or family member.  Mileage and hotel arrangements must include the travel companion.

I use a 4-wheeled scooter for mobility over long distances, but sometimes travel with my manual wheelchair instead.  I can walk short distances with a cane, and can travel in most cars and vans without the scooter.  Hotel accommodations must include an ADA approved room with a roll-in shower.  If the speaking event is at a location separate from the hotel, accessible transportation must be provided.  Please contact me directly before making any travel or hotel arrangements.  It might sound complicated, but don’t worry…I’ve done this many times!
