I'm a motivational speaker & author based in the United Kingdom

I'm Theresa a fighter and a believer. According to my friends I am a lethal combination of positivity and mischievousness. Despite my sight loss I have obtained my masters in project leadership and design. Being an exceptional motivational speaker I have lifted the spirit of audiences with humor and encouragement. As a sports enthusiast I have achieved several accolades in the field of blind tennis, blind cricket and blind sailing. The highlight being carrying the Paralympic Torch
in London in 2012.


I have been a guide dog owner for over fifteen years and am  a living example of the miraculous changes these four-legged miracles can make in the lives of the blind. I love to travel and am an avid, not so fast, runner. I try to see the funny side of being visually impaired and often embark on adventures most would belief out of reach for some one in my position. My biggest challenge however did not come in the form of blindness but mental health problems
that nearly cost me my life.
