I believe that written creative words, consulting, and speaking engagements make lasting changes for disabled people, especially my fellow Marylanders. No matter how, we have the power to transform through words.
Do you require the input of a disabled person to speak or consult on matters of cultural competency or accessibility? Disability education begins by listening to advocates who live with the experience of disability.
To discuss a speaking arrangement or consulting engagement with me, please email me directly or click the link to make an appointment via Calendly. For an accessibility consulting experience, we can do it via Zoom for safety/long distance requests. I ask for for all appointments to only be with fellow vaccinated individuals.
I kindly ask you to be respectful of my immunodeficiency, even as we get back to a place of normalcy. Thank you for your empathy and compassion during these times!
I have spoken both my own original creative work, as well as spoken as an advocate on my experience as a disabled person. Words are transforming!
For disability speaking arrangements, I have spoken at: Unitarian Universalist Church, speak at the disability panel for Community Foundation & United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore and was a co-panelist at Bay Area Center for Independent Living. I look forward to speaking and doing accessibility consulting with you!
I believe that honoring my truth and experiences are key. When booking me for speaking engagements, I honor all unique experiences that individuals with disability face. Disability is a broad-spectrum experience and nobody’s path is all encompassing – including my own. Honesty is powerful. I believe that speaking on behalf of disability is pivotal and key to moving ahead to a more inclusive world.
Please note: creative performances and speaking performances are adapted, if needed, to accommodate my voice if needed. My voice can be affected due to my neuromuscular disorder (NMD). Thank you for your understanding!
