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.”

  • At 2:00 I thought I was picking my kids up from school... at 3:00 I was on my way to the airport.
___
A last second trip for work @savageandwiser to #SanFran to support a client at a major event. However our work hard, play harder mission stayed true and we were fortunate enough to sneak out of the office for an hour and a half for some quick adventures... including checking one off the bucket list!
__
Now back home (and recharged after getting 11 hours sleep in 3 days) and can’t wait to share some highlights with you.
___
So San Fran... have you ever been???

  • Do you ever wish they’d stay little, for just a little longer?
___
As much as I am excited for all the new adventures ahead, I yearn to soak in every second of their little lives. The innocence, their cuddles, their belief in magic, and easy ability to bribed with 🍦.
____
While we close out this trip with an amazing set of photos to showcase our trip it’s the laughter that we shared that is truly burned into my memory and something that I’ll cherish forever.

  • Wondering where to go in Australia? Byron Bay should be on everyone's bucket list! "As I hopped up on my surfboard and began gliding on the perfect green wave, I took a quick glance at my son. His face was beaming with a mix of pride and surprise – watching his mom coast her way towards the golden sand of Australia’s eastern coastline in Byron Bay. And it was at this moment that I realized I was experiencing the absolute best day of my life." Click the link in my bio to read more!

  • Do you want to travel like a local to Kangaroo Island? I highly recommend taking the SeaLink Ferry! "Transportation is a big part of this. Some of my greatest travel memories come from getting around town as the locals do. Whether it’s New York City’s iconic subways or London’s double-decker buses, making an effort to use different modes of transportation is a surefire way to add to your travel experience."
