As an international brain change and behavior expert, and mom of eight (six adopted, four with cognitive challenges), my topics and issues are personally relevant and specific while remaining vastly diverse. After all, the brain plays an important role in all aspects of our professional and personal lives.
My most common topics are leadership, special needs, abuse, parenting, and sleep issues. Always I offer inspiration through stories and information while giving audiences concrete (and simple yet effective) action steps.
I appreciate the work involved in every stage of any event process and do my best to work easily with organizers, attendees, and vendors. I'm always honored to play a role in the hard work it takes to bring folks together with a common desire to share ideas and offer unique skills and knowledge.
My experience as an expert is vast. I have been practicing my Leadership teaching skills from the moment I could talk and walk, I successfully and joyfully raised eight children on my own, and I travel internationally as a practitioner, educator, show host, and speaker. I continuously teach and learn (doubly board certified in neurofeedback, a doctorate, a Ph.D., ABD, etc) with passion and vision.
As an entertainer and speaker (something I have been doing for over thirty years) I'm consistently highly rated and reviewed by attendees and organizers. What a pleasure it is to do what I love and find that people love what I do!
I have been speaking and performing for over thirty years. It is, without question, my favorite way to teach and to live my life. However, I have focused the past thirty years more on working hands-on with people while educating and have only recently (on my 60th birthday in fact!) made the decision to focus solely on speaking.
My mission is to help evolve a world wherein there is a deeper understanding that our psychology creates our physiology and our physiology creates our psychology. This gives greater weight to, and erases the division between, intentional thought and healthy living.
I have a doctorate in bio science, hold two board certifications in Neurofeedback (BCIA, NTCB) and am working on my Ph.D. (I am now ABD) in Psychology, with a specialty in Psychophysiology at Saybrook University. As a neurofeedback specialist, I'm on the cutting edge of treating autism, Parkinson’s, depression, and other brain-related disorders. I have traveled the globe performing my one woman musical comedy show CRAZY TO SANE about abuse and mental health, I produce/host/direct the international docu-series FIX IT IN FIVE with LYNETTE LOUISE aka THE BRAIN BROAD (airing on The Autism Channel), I write books and articles, I contribute to publications and serve as a source for news shows and more. With extensive training in several disciplines addressing mental health and a 30+ year personal history of working with my own special needs children, I've achieved an expertise that is both scientific and intuitive, and I'm honored to be facilitating miraculous results for my clients.
I have a passion for sharing what I know while continuing to learn.
