Thanks for your interest in having me speak to your group. You may be interested to know I am comfortable speaking in both English and Spanish.

I love speaking on topics that are dear to me, such as the Rosary, making rosaries, and the Saints. Years of high school and catechetical instruction have given me a sensitivity to teens and pre-teens and their use of social media, leading me to speak to youth and parents on internet safety and having a Christian, charitable presence on line.

The release of My Badass Book of Saints: Courageous Women Who showed Me How to Live has introduced new possibilities for inspirational and motivational talks, as well as writing workshops, and retreats for women.

I’d love to hear from you regarding your thoughts, and how I might be able to serve you and your community. Send me an email through my contact page to start the conversation.
