For me, public speaking is a joy and honor. I love sensing the energy of an audience as we are transported into storyland or venture together in learning and seeking new ways of understanding what is occurring in the world today.

The Strength of a Dream: A Daughter’s Portrait of a Northwest Children’s Author and Illustrator by Skye Burn “The transcript alone can’t begin to capture the meaning and power that Skye Burn’s cadence and pace added. I honestly can’t remember a time when I have been so moved.” Kathryn Anderson, PhD For a list of previous speeches and presentations, click here.
