Initially I was inspired to speak to groups because I felt it was important to pass on the information that I had gained from the attack. I started with small groups in a casual atmosphere. My first group I worked with consisted of my daughter’s cheerleading squad. The purpose was to inform senior girls who were getting ready to go off to college about safety and awareness. My friends have also organized small groups for their daughters and ask me to speak.
I have worked with my kickboxing instructor, David Dibella, on organizing a self-defense class that emphasizes awareness and intuition, and tips for increasing your knowledge of safety. This is an ongoing course at TMA Fitness.
My message is simple, “From Surviving to Thriving: Life Lessons for Living Every Day.” Women’s groups are certainly my niche so feel free to contact me about speaking at your next meeting.
