Or intuition, can keep you safe. Listen to your body

As a special agent with the NCIS, I learned to protect myself in dangerous situations — and it has nothing to do with my physical stature or skills.
Now, I empower women to understand how their own self-defense is an inside-job and how their personal confidence, attention to their surroundings, and gut intuition are their best tools to keep themselves safe in any potentially dangerous situation.
Forget karate chops and safety whistles: every woman already has the tools she needs to stay safe. She just needs to learn to tune in and trust them.
Through my speaking presentations, I can take an entire room of women from feeling like potential victims to victors with simple, actionable tips and strategies they can employ to take control of their situations and their safety.
