  1. Hello, I am interested in information about your public speaking. Can you email me some information? We have an annual Survivor’s Day here in AR and I am exploring options for speakers. Thank you!

    1. hi Kristen-

      I have been sick and haven’t been back on my website until today. I would be interested in knowing more about your conference! I have given over 60 speeches and was the first person (non-military, non -pro-sports athlete) to speak at Brain Injury Awareness Day on the Congressional Panel. I have spoken all over the US and Internationally, at SXSW Interactive Festival here in Austin and at ONEMIND Summitt. I can send you my resume, but wanted to get back to you immediately. I will email you on MOnday! Anne
