Schedule a Speech or Consultation
I work in a wide variety of environments and fields and am happy to help educate or inspire you and your group however you see best fit. I give speeches, run workshops, and work as an HR consultant specializing in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and LGBTQ+ Inclusion. Though I typically work with clients to create custom speeches and programs, I also have a number of pre-developed programs that I am happy to customize and deliver to your organization,
If you're interested in booking an event, send an email! I would love to work with you. I am based out of Saint Louis with roots in Boston, San Diego, and Connecticut, and am available for both virtual and in-person sessions.
If you are looking to contact me about something more personal or less formal, head over to Q&A Meetings to sign up for a casual 1-on-1 meeting, or email me directly at
Pre-Developed Speech Options: 101-Level
Trans 101 - 60-minute talk that reviews vocabulary, personal stories, and tips for practical allyship with plenty of time for Q&A. This speech is perfect for everyone from long-time advocates to those learning the phrase "transgender" for the first time.
Trans 101 - Train the Trainer: a 90-minute session that will review the content of the trans 101 session through the lens of responding to pushback from individuals who are not working from a supportive or knowledgable foundation. Ideal for DEI council groups or organizations working in advocacy hoping to understand additional lenses of intersectionality.
Trans 101 - Industry Specific: There are many different ways an individual or organization may engage with the trans community, and this session will make sure your group is prepared for that. I am able to design sessions for any group, and have significant experience facilitating sessions designed for:
Educators or those that work with LGBTQ+ youth
Parents and families of LGBTQ+ youth
High school, middle school, and elementary school youth
HR professionals and company leaders
Customer service teams
Fireside Chat: a 15-minute presentation with key identities and vocabulary words pertaining to the trans community, followed by a 45-minute fireside chat and Q&A with a leader at your company about a topic of your choice (pronouns, expression, experiences, etc.)
Pre-Developed Speech Options: 201-Level
Trans 201 - Structural and Cultural Support: This 60-minute session will walk participants through practical steps for building a trans-inclusive future by making both structural and cultural changes in their workplaces, their lives, and the world around them.
Trans Liberation - How Did We Get Here and Where are we Going?: a 90-minute session that will walk attendees through the history of the trans liberation movement, starting back long before we used the word "trans" at all, and will share the ways current advocates can learn from the historical heroes in the fight for trans lives.
Storytelling for Social Change: This 90-120 minute workshop is extremely interactive. After introducing participants to the when, why, and how of storytelling for social change, we'll talk through the concept of relational organizing, empathy bridge building, and then open up to a storytelling open-mic.
Understanding Gender Roles: This interactive workshop will walk participants through a series of reflective questions and exercises about their personal gender identity and gender journey. Participants will think through how they learned about their own gender and how they "teach" gender to other people in their lives.
Trans 201 - Understanding and Acting in the Current Political Landscape: The current landsacpe of US politics is rife with misinformation and rampant transphobia. in 2023 we have already seen over 500 anti-transgender bills proposed. This 60-90 minute session will paint a full picture of the who, what, when, where, and why of this wave of hate, and the how of getting involved in fighting back.
Custom Event: If there is a specific topic, book, bill, or situation you'd like to do an event on, please let me know! I often design new events diving deeper into topics of interest for groups that reach out to me and am always seeking opportunities to educate in new ways.
