“Communicating with people as an inspirational speaker is a deeply rewarding part of my life. It is a source of profound gratitude that my work moved beyond the spotlight to include journeying beside people who want, and believe in, a healthier way of existing for themselves, their relationships, their families, their communities, their countries and our world.” – Ann Mortifee
