To honor my sister’s memory, I have chosen to speak out against stalking and to give a voice to Peggy and the many victims whose can no longer share their stories.
Since 2003, I have been a national speaker, educator and advocate for stalking awareness. Please refer to the listing below for a summary of my work.
To book a speaking engagement, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include with your request: your name, contact information, the name of the institution or group, and potential dates for consideration. We will do our best to respond to inquiries in a timely manner.
By building awareness about the severity of this crime, I hope to correct stalking behaviors, inspire change in our justice system, and most importantly, save peoples’ lives.
