Keynote Speaker

Jodie actively engages in writing and presenting to offer support to those struggling with grief, as well as their families, friends and colleagues. She takes part in speaking engagements for various community groups and takes the lead in orchestrating programs and workshops tailored for both individuals and groups, addressing a wide spectrum of losses.

With her wealth of knowledge and personal experience, Jodie employs diverse platforms to establish a safe space where the emotions, thoughts, and behaviours accompanying loss are destigmatised.

Having lived experience of working through loss and overcoming adversity, Jodie shares her personal story of losing a loved one, and the trauma and mental health challenges that come with such an experience. Jodie brings conversations that drive positive change, promoting awareness and discussion so you, and your group or organisation can move through challenges.

Healing and recovery from significant loss are not only attainable, but facilitated by proactive steps taken over time, in conjunction with a supportive community.
