Motivational Speaking

Each of us has one life. How are you going to live your life? That’s the question I was confronted with when tragedy struck and it’s a question I ask the audience. Everyone has a story. What kind of story do you want? I want people to see what’s possible – that where there’s tragedy there can be hope; what seems insurmountable can be overcome and where there is loss you can be rich.

The moment I stepped onto a stage to tell my story in front of two thousand people six years ago, I was hooked. I spoke for only five minutes that night and I have been fortunate to repeat the experience again and again.

I’ve told my story to audiences across Canada including the British Columbia Legislative Assembly in Victoria, and more than 3,000 fire-fighters from every state and province in North America at the International Association of Fire Fighters’ Biennial Convention where I shared a billing with Hillary Clinton. I’ve been privileged to be a part of panels at World Burn Congress for the Phoenix Society and to have a seat on the board of the Burn Fund Building for the BC Professional Firefighters Burn Fund. I also serve as a Road Safety Speaker for ICBC.
