It was exhilerating!!!

My interview today with Scott Stevenson from Civil Tongues Toastmasters at Open Signal went great! We were both relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. They’ll be sending me a link to it in a couple weeks which I’ll post on Facebook and my website. If I can help at least one person, then I’m still headed in the right direction.

Always moving forward~~~~~

Cool beans baby!!!

Episode 20- Joan and John Miller | Happie Heads
Posted on February 19, 2018 by Michael Jensen

Joan and John are a delight. Witty, rambunctious, and sincere are just a few adjectives I could use to describe….

It’s what we do!!

What a great day I had at Central Catholic with Jeannette Robart & Cynthia Slauson Thurber representing Oregon Impact. We spoke to four classes and they took part in games that showed what it’s like to drive impaired, and how it’s impossible to text and drive and remain safe. We were invited back to do it again tomorrow for three additional classes! Saving lives is what Oregon Impact is all about!!

Another cool, cool day!!!!

Well this is cool! Joey Harrington former U of O quarterback, now reporter for KGW news is coming over tomorrow early afternoon to interview Kelly Sharp and I. Joey reports on people who are making a difference in their communities or beyond. I think the piece will be airing tomorrow night however I’m unsure of the time. When I find out, I’ll post the information.

A fabulous, fabulous day!!!

I had a great day today with Dr. Bruce Wojciechowski at Pacific University. I shared with 3rd quarter Optometry students how Vision Therapy was such a huge part of my TBI rehab and how by specializing in it when they set up their practices they’ll have the opportunity to impact thousands of lives!

I met Ann & Adrian, who I can’t wait to see again and spend time with. I feel confident future Behavioral Optometrists walked out of that classroom today!!

Here’s where the rubber meets the road!

Alcohol Awareness at Clackamas Community College in the Commons Area on Wednesday May 24 2017 from 10:30 to 1:30.

Free t-shirts & food. DUII Speaker Panel. Activities associated with driving under the influence.

 Volunteers with Oregon Impact will be there to answer questions and share their stories about the life changing effects of someone’s choice to drink and drive. Of which, I’ll be one!



I’ll be steppin’ it up!

The contest is on & I’m signed up to speak! Phase one of the Toastmaster International speaking contest will be Wednesday 2-8-17 at Portland State Offices building 800 NE Oregon in room 1C from noon to 1:00pm. It’s the Motivational speaking portion of the contest and for quite some time now, that’s been my focus so I’m pumped!

It goes hand in hand with my soon to be published biography, ‘Learning to Make Toast’.
