  • From Blog to Book: How Blogging Can Launch Your Writing Career: I will discuss how creating and sustaining a blog can help you develop a consistent writing practice, overcome writer’s block and build and engage an audience for your work.


  • Caregiving for the Caregiver: Caregiving is a selfless gift that can leave you physically, emotionally, and spiritually exhausted. Drawing upon the positive affirmation of sacred traditions, goddess mythology, color and chakra therapies, I will guide individuals in learning how to replenish and renew themselves. They will have an opportunity to create a personal, sacred reminder of what it means to be empathic and kind towards themselves that they can turn to for renewal in the future.


  • Fierce Living from Your Creative Heart:  Ladies, when’s the last time you allowed yourself the space to dream, imagine, and create something that inspired a deep feeling of peace, play, and fulfillment?  Wait no more. During this session, I will give you an opportunity to explore your inner women (also known as archetypes or personalities) and the role they play in your creativity through mindful writing exercises and discussion.  The takeaways include ways to tap into your inner women’s intuition, imagination, and nurturing energy as “fierce living” growth opportunities.

Digital Storytelling

  • 7 Social Media Secrets of Nonprofit Digital Storytelling: During the workshop, I will discuss how stories connect people, what they cause them to reflect on, the various ways nonprofit organizations can tell stories with visual images and sound recordings, and the best source of stories.

Digital Wellness

  • Life can be stressful for bloggers, computer users, digital media and tech professionals, and social media influencers. Does that sound like you and any of your colleagues? What better than to address your wellness in a room full of your peers? I am just what the doctor ordered, and will lead a session filled with office yoga, breathing exercises, and self-care practices to enhance your online and offline lives.

Social Media Leadership

  • What Type of Social Media Leader Are You?: Regardless of your blogging topic, there are numerous ways to define your style of blogging and the kind of leadership you want to bring to your readers. I will help you define your purpose to smooth your path.


  • Gentle Office Yoga: I will teach office yoga and breathing exercises that busy professionals can use to manage their time at work and home with more grace and ease.
