RIVETING SPEAKER
WHO WON'T PUT YOU TO SLEEP 

I am a charismatic speaker whose stories bring hope. I inspire transformation and healing by using my own compelling life stories to engage and connect on a deep emotional level. Through laughter and tears, audiences learn how to move forward without denying the past.  

I am not your typical speaker;  I am animated, high-spirited, and effective with a gift to connect with an audience who always leave with new inspiration.

Among a variety of topics:
MIRACLES HAPPEN - EXPECT THEM
                  DOES FORGIVENESS MEAN I MUST FORGET?
I have survived the challenges of major illnesses, devastating personal losses and financial ruin more than once, yet have refused to become a victim. My goal is to share with others how to survive and....... thrive.

In my bi-weekly talk show “Never Ever Give Up Hope”, I interview people with remarkable and heart-warming stories of how they overcame overwhelming obstacles and achieved success. “Never Ever Give Up Hope” has an international audience in over 70 countries.








In 2015, I received the Woman of Impact Award from Focus on Women Magazine as well as Author of the Year for my fast-paced memoir, Battered Hope, written as a novel.
I am a regular contributor to several blog sites. I have been published in three anthologies including a best-seller.

In addition to motivational speaking, hosting a talk show and writing, I am a business owner, a wife, mother, grandmother and together with my husband have rescued over 30 dogs.

One of my greatest pleasures in life is sharing my life story as an inspirational speaker.  I have traveled extensively as a speaker for Women's Clubs, Business Groups, Church Groups and Health Awareness Groups for thirty years.  

Please contact me at batteredhope@gmail.com to book me as a speaker.  I guarantee each individual who attends will be encouraged and inspired to rise above any curves that life may throw at them.  Sharing laughter and challenges so intense, you can hear a pin drop!
