A trained + experienced facilitator and speaker, I love connecting with an audience whether at the front of the room or in the middle of it. Growing up I played 5 instruments and was a trained singer which led to weekly performances so stages feel as comfortable to me as a life long friend. In high school I had a radio show with a friend called the Perky Sisters where we spun 80's icons like Depeche Mode, Tears for Fears + Duran Duran.


Training: year-long leadership + facilitation course, a year of improv training [in chicago, natch] along with real world on-stage experience. I've spoken at many tech conferences.

Current Talks

Lately I'm talking about learning to code after 40 and how to make changes in your life when you think it's too late or isn't prudent.

Selected Speaking Gigs

  • Rocky Mountain Ruby 
  • Kalamazoo X 
  • Farmhouse Conf 
  • Girls in Tech 303
  • Boulder Startup Week 
  • Denver Startup Week 

I've also spoken at Ignite Boulder + Ignite Fitness as well as additional speaking engagements across the US, Canada and Sweden. 

If you're looking for a fun, well facilitated presentation that feels like a cross between an excited cockerspaniel + geeky book worm giving a talk around a campfire I might just be your gal.
