Think of mental flexibility as being akin to changing channels on your TV, but instead, the channels are your thoughts, and the TV is your brain. If you get stuck on one channel, your stream-of-thoughts or beliefs cannot be updated or altered. Flexible thinking is a necessary skill for dealing with life’s challenges.

"I would highly recommend Amy Dee as a Keynote speaker. She was our closing Keynote for TCSHRM’s Spring Conference and definitely was something to see. She is entertaining from the moment she hit the stage with her story telling and songs she sang. While planning for the conference with Amy, she was always upbeat and enthusiastic. She was extremely professional and anticipated what to bring with her to make her time on stage go off without a hitch. All around we had a great time with Amy Dee and would recommend her to anyone looking for a speaker that can bring that something extra to their event."
“I loved this!!!! She more than engaged her audience. Through her words, she painted an entire movie where the listener could picture everything she was talking about. How to interact with others through kindness, how to see the humor and positive in each situation. I was laughing so hard at the end, I'm surprised no one came into my office to see what was going on. Would love to see her again. Her positive, upbeat energy is contagious.”
"There are many words that would describe Amy Dee. She is funny, humble, smart, relatable, professional and kind. She moderated our day-long virtual education for behavioral health staff beautifully with her husband as her IT/camera man. Both did an outstanding job! The audience enjoyed her humor as well as the wisdom she shared in memorable ways. She was an absolute joy to work with as well. The kindness she showed afterward to our hospitals with sweet gifts just shows that her heart is there for health care. I will look for many more opportunities to use her and plan to spread her name to all I know."
“Amy Dee was outstanding and really impressed our members. The compliments keep coming in long after the event. Her experience in healthcare and outlook on life combined for a great keynote at our annual convention. Thoroughly entertaining, very thoughtful and yet hilarious! All with an amazing demeanor before, during and after the show and a real connection with our owners, operators, administrators and nurse members.”
“Amy brought the ‘WOW’ to our employee celebration week. Amy has a remarkable ability to captivate the audience through humor, story-telling, and music—providing a memorable experience that our employees are still raving about. She is truly a positive difference-maker!”
