Public Speaking

Missy loves to share the story of how she turned her passions into her career! She grew up with a learning disability and was told in high school that she wouldn't get into a four year school. However, she overcame her fears, figured out what learning styles work best for her, and moved forward with momentum. Two degrees and several certifications later, she decided to combine her passions and create Wellness for Makers! To invite Missy speak at your event, fill out the form below.

Testimonials

“Missy’s story is an important one to tell. She started her company from two things she is truly passionate about and it shows. She shared with the women of Babes In Business her struggles & successes. They were able to relate with her that evening and be empowered by her words.”
— Jenn Chavez, Babes in Business
“Missy immediately connected with our group and engaged them in learning ways to massage and exercise with special focus on hands and feet. She was knowledgeable and convincing. We left feeling stretched, energized, and motivated.”
— KATHRYN CHISHOLM, Performing Arts Associate, Grounds for Sculpture
“Historically artists weren’t given instruction on how to take care of themselves while working. The art came first and health considerations came second, if at all. Missy is helping change these attitudes towards wellness. She offers artists the tools to continue their work AND stay healthy. Wellness for Makers provides instruction to help maintain health throughout the work day and beyond. These classes are a great benefit to everyone!”
— Erin Daily & Brian Weissman, Brooklyn Metal Works

”We spend money on tools and equipment for our studios, find ways to repair and replace the tools we need to make our work and often discount our most important tool, our bodies. Wellness for Makers is a brilliant resource to help us nurture, maintain and repair our bodies.”
— Kristin Muller, Executive Director, Peters Valley School of Craft
“SNAG was thrilled to have Wellness for Makers as part of our annual conference this year! As makers, we sometimes forget to take breaks, so Missy led our attendees through stretches in the morning and in the afternoon to get everyone moving. We thought it was vital to give our attendees both a reminder to stand up and stretch, and the opportunity to learn self-care techniques to take back to their benches.”
— ALAINA CLARKE Conference Program Manager, Society of North American Goldsmiths
