Because of the COVID 19 pandemic, in-person events have mainly gone by the wayside for now, but they are coming back!. I've spoken live to groups as small as 25 and as large as 1,500 in the rotunda at the Missouri State Capitol.
I have brought that experience online to keep educating people about autism, Neurodiversity and issues involving these subjects to groups as large as 3,900..
I can do presentations, teach classes, or facilitate Zoom discussion groups on a variety of topics. for any size crowd.
Tye is my possibly autistic autism service dog. I got him from Dog's Nation, a group that works with those on the spectrum and vets.
All their dogs are rescue animals, and my black lab/boxer mix was found in a garbage bag in a dumpster at six months old. Now the rescued is rescuing me.
I've been a guest on many shows and have always brought, energy, humor and a sense of being real to the program. If you're looking for a guest, look no further.
Don't just take my word for it, listen to what others have said.
Thank you for the wonderful presentation, you are such an engaging speaker, I loved listening to you.
I know parents will take away a lot from your session, I definitely learned a lot. In my opinion, viewers will love your presentation because it was real and informative but also, you speak in an engaging and entertaining way which makes it easy to listen, and take in what you shared!
Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to me, I really appreciate it.
"JR gave a 15-minute presentation tonight at Slam the Hammer Mastermind that was nothing short of brilliant! What we experienced tonight is TedX worthy."
