Current Speaking and Teaching Topics
Establishing effective self-care strategies
The What, Why and How of putting the practices in place, from where you are right now, that will allow you to thrive in all areas of your life. This includes the mindset needed to do it, how to form a plan that fits your life now AND still works when obstacles or challenges pop up, and best practices to making it sustainable longer than a hot second. You will leave with a framework and skills to apply to your own life moving forward as well as the mindset to support and sustain it.
How to Build Resilience and confidence by using obstacles as opportunities
I share my experiences and challenges as both a mama to two sets of twins and the experience of losing my hair to alopecia. I share the skills I developed and the steps I took that built me, instead of breaking me and which led me to partner with Dove for their Real Beauty Campaign in 2017 and then again in 2019 as part of the Show Us campaign with partners, GirlGaze and Getty Images. You will leave with a a framework and skills to apply to your own life and mindset.
How to Raise Body confident, Body Positive Children
In this powerful talk I share the strategies, tips and tools all parents, teachers and anyone working with children can use to help them foster a powerful and positive body image AND know they are more than a body. Helping kids know that they are more than what they look like, especially as they journey through puberty is one of the most important skill sets we can give them. In this workshop I teach skills, strategies, conversation starters and ways of approaching this sometimes delicate topic so you can be your kids go-to person, even if you struggle with body image and body confidence yourself.
Nutrition 101 - Learning and practicing the basics
For adults - Learning the skills that will support your idea of healthy and happy, how to make them work in your real life, navigate challenges confidently and continue to do so as your life ebbs, flows and changes. This also includes a lesson on how to make fresh pasta, because I’m Italian, enjoyment and pleasure are part of eating and my philosophy of teaching food and nutrition and its fun. :)
For parents - Evidence based strategies, tools and information on how to raise confident, independent eaters as they grow. This workshop includes age appropriate skills, key language to use when talking about foods, health, and developing healthy habits with kids, and how to navigate challenges you may face confidently and calmly.
