Why Hire Tammy to Speak?

As a speaker and storyteller, I connect with audiences by sharing narratives that embody resilience and support for people from all walks of life. My engaging strategies foster active participation, making the experience profoundly inclusive and transformative.

I don’t just talk to people; I communicate with them.

By blending humor with empathy, I make our discussions relatable to everyday life. This practical approach not only sparks relatable conversations but also inspires actionable steps that enhance teamwork and collaboration within your group.


I firmly believe that all aspects of our lives are interconnected, a principle that underpins my advocacy for wellness. In my speaking engagements, my passion lies in helping others recognize the importance of nurturing their mental well-being and practicing self-care.

Sometimes, you might think, ‘I already know how to breathe.’ But, with my guidance, I can teach you to breathe even more deeply, to connect more profoundly with the environment around you and with your inner intentions. This is how, together, we can foster a safe space where we confront and address our deepest concerns.

Having navigated through a life filled with challenges, my ability to resonate with others comes not just from academic knowledge, but from the depths of real-world experiences. While I may hold a psychology degree, it’s the trials I’ve endured and overcome that truly qualify me to stand before you today. My insights are drawn not from textbooks, but from the very paths I’ve tread — paths that are available to us all, should we choose to embark upon them.

Let me tell you, the limitations others place on you, the voices that say ‘you can’t’ or ‘you’re not good enough,’ are merely echoes of their own fears, not reflections of your true potential. You possess an innate strength and are deserving of every bit of support on your journey. Remember, it’s through embracing our own stories and challenges that we unlock our deepest wisdom and capabilities.
