Hosting an event?
Make it an unforgettable experience participants will utilize to build self-directed, healthy resources for the rest of their lives.
Your people love working with you. They are also mightily stressed out and overwhelmed, so you offer lots of wellness benefits. You want to help, and they want to accept that help! But they can't figure out how to manage it... what with the pandemic, world events, and a tsunami of personal responsibilities.
My workshops and keynotes reorient the way they understand and utilize preventative, healthy habits.
What is a "bad" habit?
What's getting in the way?
What makes it easier?
What if control isn't the answer?
What if "time management" isn't always the solution?
What if there is another way?
Imagine the relief they'd have with clarity about exactly what kind of "self-care" they need, access to it, and reduced internal battles over what they should be utilizing... but can't seem to find the time.
Imagine the cost savings of offering targeted benefits your folks can't wait to use and scaling back the rest—but you can't know what those are until your people know what they want and how to communicate it.
I have spoken at organizations and universities nationwide including Google, Vanderbilt University, Fe League, the Nashville Women’s March 2019, The University of the South, the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, Confluence, and the Girls to the Moon Conference.
Corporate and University Workshops
These workshops help participants and organizations build versatile systems that can be modified over time for sustainable clarity, stress relief, and improved health outcomes.
Book clubs and bookstore events
Get a group together, and ask me your toughest questions! I love connecting with book clubs and doing bookstore events — virtually and in person.

"Sarah addresses not only nutrition and exercise obstacles but gives you a forum to work on root causes of self-sabotage and what's holding you back from success."
Vice President of Meetings and Event Strategy

"Sarah is fantastic at finding out what students and faculty are thinking about and helping us understand how what we care about relates to personal and societal wellness. That would be enough, but she also helps us all move toward compassion, understanding, and peace. She is refreshingly upbeat and frank--so needed in these times!"

"Our team has been raving about their sessions with Sarah—so much so that they are asking for additional ones. The framework has been so eye-opening!"
