WHAT THEY’RE SAYING

AUDIENCE TESTIMONIALS

 
 

Melissa, who wasn’t afraid to be real, was one of the most honest and inspiring people I've heard speak. Her willingness to share her own emotions while calling out society for its faults made her talk that much more relatable. Melissa confronted truths I never even thought about.

Melissa has a real gift for connecting with her audience while tackling uncomfortable issues such as sexism, racism, patriarchy, and privilege. Her experience as an educator comes through as she weaves personal examples, solid social science data, and humor into a presentation that leaves her audience both informed and inspired.

 She spoke to the audience with respect and sensitivity for the members’ varying backgrounds, balancing difficult conversations with touches of humor and wit. In two hours with her, I learned more than I did in a semester-long, college-level human sexuality course.

This presentation was multidimensional and very flexible to include specific populations, and Melissa's presentation style was completely engaging. She was readily available for questions, and allowed a level of customization that we greatly appreciated. She was a pleasure to work with, and I would highly recommend you bring her to your organization!

 
 

“MELISSA’S TEACHING STYLE

is a fantastic mixture of sharp doses of reality, validating experiences, and humor. Our students have continued to talk about her workshop in the weeks after she came to campus.” —Student
