Cheryl has been educating and inspiring audiences for over twenty-five years. Her speaking career began after she suddenly lost the majority of her eyesight. In the beginning, she was sought after by schools and organizations, to speak on topics of blindness, using a guide dog and overcoming life’s challenges.
Her company, Living Inspired Fully Everyday (L.I.F.E.), has evolved into, as she describes, “A life beyond my wildest dreams.”
Cheryl speaks to audiences of all ages throughout the United States. She is an author, keynote speaker and podcaster.
“Don’t give up. We are all differently abled. My challenges may be obvious. Yours may not be so obvious. You may struggle with a certain subject, shy or insecure, or... Whatever it may be, we can find a solution. We can shift gears. We can walk around the wall, rather than continue to hit our heads on it. We don’t have to live in the problem. Let’s live in the solution.”
Cheryl tailors her presentations and workshops according to her audiences and as per your request. Contact Cheryl for more information.
“The only thing worse than blindness, is having sight with no vision.” Helen Keller
