Public Speaker

Authentic, candid, and hopeful, Amanda is an experienced public speaker who champions the causes that have directly impacted her life. From building self-worth and self-esteem to navigating grief and confusion following suicide loss, Amanda seeks to empower her audience to take their mental health as seriously as they would a cancer scare. To nurture it and assess it boldly and bravely, leading them to live the fullest life possible. Amanda believes that when bad things happen to good people, we have a responsibility to share our stories so that others might be transformed and enlightened. Amanda boldly shares her story with vulnerability, honesty, and hope for the future. Amanda's speeches are perfect for service organizations and schools as an outreach component to her concerts.
