Meeting Planners
Thank you for taking the time to visit the 'Bullying Is Not A Game' website.

Hiring me will provide your event with the unique combination of the excellence of a CSP (Certified Professional Speaker) with my own family's first person account of bullying's power to hurt, bullying's cost and its consequences.

I will provide an inspiring, empowering message of hope for;
  • parents
  • students
  • school board trustees
  • school administrators
  • educators
  • parents' associations
  • police
  • mental health staff
  • health care professionals
They will hear of
  • the forms bullying takes
  • the personal impact of losing friends and cherished childhood memories
  • the loss of common childhood experiences and milestones such as playing at recess, life-shaping friendships, sports, drama, assemblies and graduations
  • the nightmare of depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and post-traumatic stress, and our struggle to keep our daughter alive
  • the hard won lessons, wisdom,skills and strategies to manoeuvre through the 'system'
  • the character qualities of faith, humility, forgiveness and determination
  • the amazing and encouraging victory of a now healthy, successful young woman with a bright future ahead of her
It would be a pleasure to work with you.
