Public Speaking

public speaking

Public Speaking is one of Haley's many skills. She spends much of her time speaking at various high schools, middle schools, colleges, and church groups presenting at firesides and girls’ camps.

To schedule one of Haley's presentations, please contact her

Fireside and other religious based events:

Haley’s presentation includes her remarkable personal story of over coming depression and anorexia. She gives vital information about the destructive power of this addiction. She enjoys speaking in church events because it allows her to incorporate her faith, the power of the priesthood, and her testimony. She teaches the audience the importance of knowing their divine worth, having good self-esteem, and possessing the knowledge that they are a loved child of God.

Adult Church Groups:

In addition to the above presentation information Haley adds what parents can do to prevent eating disorders and what they can do if their own child is suffering.

*Church speaking events are free of charge.

School Presentations about Eating Disorders:

Along with sharing her intense details of her own battle with anorexia, Haley speaks about warning signs, prevention, and the importance of getting treatment.
Her presentation includes fascinating facts about the media’s influence, air-brushing, and the subconscious connections we make between food and emotions. She uses amazing power point slides and pictures to demonstrate as she speaks.

Literacy Presentations:

Because Haley has written and published a book she can provide educational information about both processes.
She teaches about different writing exercises, tips, and styles.
She also provides slides and visual aids to show the publishing process.

Combo Presentations:

Often Haley is asked to do a combo presentation where she divides her time. She presents first about eating disorders and self esteem then closes with the literacy/ publishing presentation.

Eating Disorder Centers or Support Groups:

Haley shares her personal story which not only allows patients suffering with the same disease to feel that they are not alone, but it also gives them great hope for a full recovery since Haley has been recovered for over twelve years with no set backs.
She also enjoys speaking to their family, to provide them with a deeper understanding of the illness and allow them into the mind of someone who has anorexia.

Haley is open to speaking at additional types of events that are not listed, please contact her.


Haley is not only a wonderful author, but she is a great presenter who relates well with the kids. I know she will strengthen many with her powerful message.

--Sherry, High School Librarian

A Future for Tomorrow is a heart-wrenching look into the mind and heart of a young girl who struggles with anorexia and shows the reader what it's like to battle the disease every day. While at times the story is sorrowful, in the end I came away filled with the knowledge that for all those who suffer with debilitating eating disorders, there is hope. There is promise. They can be made whole again and look to their futures with joy and happiness as Haley did, leaning on her relationship with Jesus Christ and coming to a deeper understanding of her true place as a daughter of God.

--Tristi Pinkston, LDS Author and MediaReviewer

What an amazing story. I want the world to read it!

--Liz, Scipio Utah

It's so nice for me to read about someone else who had such a similar experience to mine--someone who I could really relate to and vice versa. Because one of the terrible things about anorexia is the feeling of being completely alone. It's nice to know that there is someone else out there who can really understand.

--Micaela, recovered from anorexia

Her story shed a whole new light on this disease for me and I will never again hear the word anorexia without thinking of Haley's story.

--J. Adams, Author and motivational speaker
