Vikki speaks at the Parkinson’s Convention in New Mexico! Check her out!
“Vikki Claflin spoke at our 2017 New Mexico Parkinson’s Coalition Conference. We were looking for a humorist to lighten the agenda for the day since it was heavy with “doctor-speak.” Vikki fit the bill perfectly. She immediately connected with her audience and had them laughing in the first few seconds. Her presentation was not only humorous but poignant as well, as she discussed everyday issues that people with PD face. She added the perfect note of “can do” positive attitude to our conference and showed folks that attitude does make a difference. We would highly recommend Vikki for any speaking gigs that require a touch of humor and lots of motivation!” Karen St. Clair, Conference Co-Chair, Board Member, NM Parkinson’s Coalition
“When I read excerpts from Vikki’s book about her experiences living with Parkinson’s, I knew I wanted her to be our speaker at our 2nd Annual Parkinson’s Family Night! During our family night, Vikki helped us by chatting with all of the attendees and making them feel welcome!” Connie Udell, Parkinson’s Family Night Event Coordinator, Owner, SOL Fitness
“Hilarious and totally relatable!”
“A must-hear for Parkinson’s patients, family members, friends, and caregivers!”
“Vikki makes public speaking look easy!”
“Combines reality with humor. What a blessing!”
“A breath of fresh air in an otherwise scary time!”
“Laughter truly is the best medicine. Vikki rocked the room. Thank you!”
“This dynamic, entertaining, and inspirational 30-minute presentation chronicles Vikki’s hilarious and often poignant journey dealing with Parkinson’s Disease with her usual irreverence and wit. If you need a speaker for your Parkinson’s event, hire her!”
