“Holly did a fantastic job speaking to our group of young professionals. She shared an engaging story about her family’s journey with cystic fibrosis, while still incorporating a light hearted humor to her speech. She is a captivating storyteller that relates to her audience on a down-to-earth level, yet still delivers with a graceful intelligence."

public speaking

Holly has had the privilege of speaking to groups as small as 6 and as large as 600.  Her audiences have been composed of medical, sales and business professionals, as well as adults with cystic fibrosis and parents of children with cystic fibrosis.

Holly takes into account who her audience is and the time allotted for her talk.  Cystic fibrosis can be a "heavy" topic.  Holly infuses appropriate humor into her talks.  After all, laughter can be a great tool for getting through some tough times.  Her goal is for the audience to leave feeling informed, enlightened and empowered.

Maggie-Faye often accompanies Holly.  Maggie-Faye is able to offer her perspective, along with answering questions.  Together they have taught numerous school children about cystic fibrosis with a storybook and hands-on experiences.  Maggie-Faye has spoken in front of audiences containing as many as 50 people.
