A keynote that brings hope
to post-COVID healthcare teams
like only an RN with horse sense can.

Here’s the truth.

Working in healthcare has its own unique set of highs and lows.

And unless you’ve been in the trenches, it’s hard to empathize with the rigors and frustrations of this audience. Especially considering the devastation we’ve endured in the path of COVID.

While there are legions of great motivational speakers who can tell inspiring stories, wouldn’t it be more meaningful to hear from someone who’s felt their joy and pain firsthand?

My talk inspires leaders, nurses, and other team members feeling burnout to get back in the game.

Not with motivational happy talk.

Instead, I engage them with survival secrets horses have lived by for over 56 million years. I call them “Horse Wisdoms” that can help healthcare professionals get their spark back for this noble calling.

Audiences leave empowered to find hope and a way through the pressure, stress, and grief that come with the job and life in the new reality, post-COVID.
