Speak At Your Event

Professional Speaking Engagements

With over 15 years of public speaking experience Jami is an engaging and fun speaker to have at events.

Jami specializes in two main areas of speaking. The first is motivational stories and inspirational presentations where she is often brought in to share what got her into travel writing and how it has transformed her life.

As a Digital Media Consultant, Jami regularly works with BIA’s, associations, and special interest groups to present on Social Media, SEO, and upcoming trends in digital media.

How the most embarrassing moment of my life became the catalyst for change.

In this inspirational talk, Jami gets very personal about a truly embarrassing moment that once survived, she used as a catalyst for change. She breaks down what wasn’t working in her life and how people can take the lessons she’s learned to lead a more fulfilling, fun, and adventure-filled life.

Embracing your inner fireball

With all the pressure of today’s society, people often find themselves a slave to everything they have to do with very little time to do what they want to do. In this talk Jami shares concepts about how to flip the priority triangle on its head and start living a life that inspires you. It’s not going to be an easy conversion, but most things that are worthwhile, don’t come easy.

What Others Are Saying

“Jami was one of the first bloggers that we had chosen to partner with for our “Coastal Christmas” festivities – she set the bar so high for everyone who came after her! Her email communication leading up to the visit was thorough, and we easily agreed on the details of what was expected after she and the family spent the weekend with us. Jami was prompt on the delivery of the posts, and did a great job at documenting the experience in real-time on her social media accounts. She has continued to be an essential ambassador for our destination and we are thrilled with the work she has done.”

  • I can’t tell you where we were exploring!
___
With social distancing being the utmost priority we need to find quiet outdoor places that we can explore with limited interaction. The big parks and hikes are overwhelmed with people (and honestly I’m feeling partly to blame for promoting them)
___
So here’s how to find a safe and fun place to explore with your family:
___
1. Look at your local city map of parks and find one you’ve never heard of.
2. Look for parks that are remote or in rural areas. The further out they are the less populated they will be.
3. Look for parks with multiple entrances and choose the entrance with the fewest cars.
4. Maintain a safe 2 meters distance from anyone you greet on the path.
5. When you’re not out in the woods in the middle of no where... stay home! I think we’re on day 9 of isolation (I’ve lost count)!
___
Getting out side and getting physical exercise is important to our mental and physical health, especially during these challenging times.
___
From our family to yours, be safe, be healthy. We are all in this together #CovidKindness.
