Let’s Inspire Change

We need to normalize the conversation between oncology providers and patients and prioritize sexual healthcare during and after treatment. Whether you’re a provider or a patient, I want to help you feel comfortable talking about sexual health issues.  I’m available for speaking engagements on a variety of topics. Please see the speaking topics and list of events below, and contact me for more information.

Speaking Topics

  • After Cancer: Finding Intimacy Again
  • All of Me: Prioritizing Sexual Health in Cancer Care
  • Bridging the Communication Gap for Providers and Patients: Sexual Health and Cancer
  • Cancer Changes Everything: A Patient’s Story

I am available to speak at health care conferences, association group meetings, and survivor events. Contact me for more information.
