Beth has a story that is at once dramatic, difficult, and ultimately triumphant and inspiring. She’s honest, candid, and has a natural talent for connecting with a wide range of audiences:
- In K-12 classrooms and public libraries, kids learn about blindness—and how Beth works using her talking computer, travels with her Seeing Eye dog, and accomplishes day-to-day tasks using adaptive techniques.
- Beth frequently conducts writing workshops and participates in panels on the craft and business of writing.
- To older adults and gerontologists, Beth speaks about the powerful benefits of memoir writing. Much of her wisdom has been gained from a decade of leading memoir classes for senior writers.
- To corporate audiences, Beth speaks on disability in the workplace, as well as providing inspiration-focused presentations.
- In college classes, Beth gives talks to classes on creative writing, journalism, veterinary medicine, disability studies, and counseling.
