In my work as a Work-Life and Career Coach, I have had the opportunity to deliver keynote speeches, provide workshops, author a book, and write many articles on work-life balance and related topics. I have also been featured in several national publications and invited to participate in print, broadcast, and online discussions on these topics. You can find information about, and sometimes access to, these discussions on this page.
