Why I’m honored to speak in Canada as an American

By momondays | Mar 10, 2019

I’m an American with Autism. I was diagnosed at 2 years old. I remember not speaking for the first few years of my life as many individuals with a form of Autism can’t do so. But when I could start speaking, I could talk up a storm. Going to school was hard for me. I…

The Most Interesting Man in the World

By momondays | Feb 26, 2019

I had my first momondays experience on stage Monday February 25th where I shared my experience with PTSD. I wasn’t sure what to expect. It wasn’t that I hadn’t spoken in public before. I made a career as a communications professional, training senior military staff on speech delivery and interview techniques, retiring as a senior…

Moving from Oh NO, to Oh WOW!

By momondays | Jan 17, 2019

After enduring a massive motorcycle accident, I was told I will never walk, talk, eat solid foods or ever move your left side again and likely won’t remember anything prior to the accident. Doctor said, quite simply, ‘You’re brain-damaged!’ I don’t remember the medical terms, but I understood it all meant ‘vegetable.’ Two years later,…

Meeting Teri Kingston

By Ray and Marc | Dec 17, 2018

I don’t think a year has gone by since 1993 that I haven’t watched Bill Murray’s classic movie, Groundhog day. As much as I try to limit my TV time to a minimum, It just seems to call me. Tonight, 25 years later, as I sit down to plan my week, I think, I’ve just…

Just Call Me Lady

By momondays | Dec 8, 2018

My story is not just another transgender person’s “transition” story — it’s a story of my completion as a happy human. Born thinking I was a little girl in Glasgow Scotland. Until mainstream society’s rude awakening forced me to live as a boy for survival. I will talk about my journey of discovery with humour,…

My Breakfast With Jermaine

By momondays | Sep 17, 2018

I read and watch news like most of us and was becoming stressed by the horrors the media presents us with daily. The more I watched, the more fearful I became that I would find myself in any of those terrifying situations. My terrifying situation happened unexpectedly while on holiday in the U.S. and it…

Dreams have a way of find the light of day, if you let them…

By momondays | Jul 30, 2018

A few years back, I was fortunate enough to see B.B. King at his blues club in Orlando. I was doubly fortunate enough to be sitting in the front row — not that much farther away than the screen you are reading this on is from you. It was a powerful experience, not only because…

Keeping it real

By momondays | Apr 26, 2018

I am a big believer in synchronicity and that things happening for a good reason… at just the right time! You see, I finished writing my momondays talk a while ago, yet didn’t even notice that I was being completely inauthentic in real life. I was in the process of getting a job, one that…

What makes momondays different?

By momondays | Apr 19, 2018

I am reminded of poet David Whyte who once said, “It takes tremendous courage to live any life at all. Even if it is only tending a simple garden outside one’s kitchen window.” For me, that is what momondays is about… ordinary people like me standing on stage to tell my story in a way…
