She is a 15+ year member of the National Speakers Association and has presented her programs to hundreds of audiences around the world and clients that include Cisco Systems, General Electric, Lockheed Martin, Fifth Third Banks, American Bar Association, GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals, Credit Suisse First Boston and NASA.
