Invite Special Agent Heather to Speak

I love traveling the country talking to corporations, women’s groups, universities, athletic teams, ministries – and anyone who’s excited to hear her message of empowerment. Meeting new friends along the way is always a perk!


After interviewing hundreds of victims over the years, I was startled at how many women said they knew they were in a dangerous situation — that they shouldn’t have gotten in the elevator, the car, the parking garage. But they didn’t listen to their own gut, and fell prey to a crime.

Today, through my speaking, I teach young women that they already have the power to keep themselves safe. I show them:

  • The power of intuition or the gift of fear in both dangerous and everyday situations
  • How to prevent sexual assault and other crimes
  • Creating a positive digital reputation online
  • Healthy relationships… and the warning signs of unhealthy ones
  • How to stay safe while traveling
  • And much more.
  • How you can use stereotypes to your advantage and become an effective leader

Talking about crime can be scary. I keep our talks engaging and entertaining. Here’s a quick peak at how we can still laugh while learning stay strong…

And while I can share some powerful physical self-defense tips both from the stage or in small groups, my most important work is empowering young women to understand that they have the power in these situations, which can be monumental and life-changing.
