Speaking Engagements

The Right Speaker For Your Next Event

As an expert in building businesses, growing teams and cultivating resilience through adversity, I’m able to tailor every speaking engagement into one that will inform, inspire, and motivate your audience to take action. With a degree in music & theater and professional training as an actress, I have been performing on stages since grade school. Which is how I know that no matter the audience, the most important thing is creating a meaningful connection. I’m able to do exactly that by bringing real life scenarios and lessons to the forefront of every speaking topic. Leaving audiences reinvigorated and ready to take their talents to the next level.

I had the pleasure of attending the Polka Dot Powerhouse Conference Celebration. Michelle was the closing keynote speaker, and it was so clear the organizers saved the best for last! Michelle is a powerhouse speaker on her own merits. She is a storyteller and a teacher. Her speech was the perfect combination of heart and head. I look forward to hearing her speak on increasingly larger stages.
