CHAMPION FOR CHANGE
Speaker. Author. Educator.
Educator, CHAMPION FOR CHANGE.
As a child lumberjack, I was left alone after a life-threatening injury. Told that my value was only the labor I could provide, I built my way back by finding mentors and support, to become an advocate telling my story and speaking out against child labor, and for mentoring and support for women and children on the margin.
I began this journey when my blindfolds fell.
It felt as if my world was falling apart. Then I was reminded that “to see demands responsibility,” so I began Speaking, Mentoring, and Teaching. As I spoke, I wrote, which became my memoir about my life as a child lumberjack. As I mentored and was mentored, I realized what an open heart, a listening ear, and a helping hand could do, so I built Undaunted Women.
Riveting audiences with my story of working as a child lumberjack and the accident that nearly took my life, I share my inspirational journey of dropping the blindfolds and becoming a champion for change.
