Faye's Talk

Ridiculed and abused as a child, Faye transformed herself into a world-class figure skating coach and then an inspirational life coach with unique style...and that was after she hit rock bottom--emotionally, personally, physically and mentally. Now a bestselling author and an inspirational speaker, Faye inspires her audience with her dynamic, energetic, animated storytelling to follow their dreams, to empower themselves, to take their life to the next level! She'll show your audiencehow some of their beliefs are holding them back from achieving what they want in their lives, and how to turn them around for a powerful breakthrough.  It's through the lessons of her own journey and the journey of her students, she passionately brings the profound truths to life of what makes life meaningful and successful. 

"What got you here won't get you there!" she'd tell her audience.

"Life happens outside the comfort zone! I invite you to kick off your shoes and dance to the music in your HEART!"

Faye sees figure skating as a metaphor for life. She discovered that the same qualities that are holding back an elite athlete from performing at his highest potential, are holding the rest of us back also. She’ll keep your audience on the edge of their seats, and they will walk away inspired, energized and empowered, ready to tackle new challenges in life, ready to take commitment to move forward and become active co-creators of their lives. She will create an experience for them that will stay in their hearts long after she is done talking. "[Faye] is not unlike the great American basketball coach Phil Jackson..." Steve Chandler, author of the "Time Warrior" said. Galit Chait-Moracci, World Bronze Figure Skating Medalist, World and Olympic coach herself, said that "Faye makes you realize that it is possible to attain your life goals no matter what the situation. She [Faye] has a deep passion for everything she does, and I was truly inspired."
