Speaking Schedule

Reading a textbook can be boring, I get it (even though I tried to make mine as entertaining as possible...). That's why I love speaking in person about funding college through scholarships, and my audiences have included high schools, colleges, honors programs, college funding organizations, and college preview days. I'm as comfortable speaking to a room of two hundred people as I am meeting you for coffee and hearing your own story.

There are many groups I love speaking to, including 4-H and FFA clubs, youth groups, college preview days, current college students, high schools and junior highs, scholarship providers, college funding organizations, community education programs, and teachers and principals. 

I can speak on any of the following topics or develop a custom talk tailored to your group's needs:
  1. Finding and winning scholarships
  2. Writing the perfect scholarship essay
  3. How to develop your life goals such that college and scholarships work to fulfill them 
  4. How I kept a 4.00 GPA in college
  5. Keeping an education-life balance while in college
My two current popular talks are as follows:
