Tina imparts insights from her experiences as a coach, interviewer, and writer to inspire action among audiences around the world.
Tina is a keynote speaker and interviewer who has presented at conferences, companies, and events around the world. Whether delivering a keynote on a conference main stage, conducting interviews with notable creators, or moderating discussions with influential voices, Tina encourages audiences to get curious and ask questions of meaning about how we engage in our work and show up for our lives.
Drawing upon her training as a coach and the six years she spent interviewing hundreds of creators as Cofounder and Editor in Chief of The Great Discontent magazine, Tina addresses themes that permeate the creative landscape: self-doubt and imposter syndrome, how to build a sustainable career, burnout, managing uncertainty and risk, prioritizing opportunities, unexpected and planned transitions, and the search for fulfillment.
Weaving together powerful personal narratives, Tina embraces vulnerability, sharing her experience of building a business, being consumed by the hustle, and reimagining her entire world after her marriage to her business partner ended. Realigning with her internal values, rebuilding her life from the inside out, and implementing small changes in her daily routines created big ripples and ultimately led her to the most fulfilling work she’s done thus far.
Through speaking, Tina champions her mission to help others abandon the hustle and live more meaningful lives while doing the work. Because she believes it’s possible to be both content and ambitious at the same time. And she believes that we don’t have to wait for a life-changing event to start taking action.
