Public Speaking

Hello. It’s nice you’re here. I assume you’re interested in being part of the art of conversation on madness. Me too.
I’ve wanted to write and speak about my experiences of madness and treatment in acute psychiatric care since I first slept in the hospital bed in 2005. The experience was so compelling that it ultimately led me to work in the mental health field, to study social work, then to circle back to my roots in the arts, and now to create Silent Revolution. 

I languished with my mental health struggles for over fifteen years and literally lost the ability to speak in the state of catatonia. I’m turning that around. Of course, with help. With an incredible husband, joyous son, amazing friends, gifted professionals, the NDIS, and my steadfast belief that wellness is possible.

I’m available to share with you and your community on topics that are important to us, such as Madness, Creativity and Wellbeing.

If you wish me to visit in person or Zoom in on your event, big or small, and speak my mind, please contact me directly.
