As highly-rated speakers, your audiences will love our informative, entertaining, and inspirational sessions.
what to expect
When life and business gets challenging, Morgan turns to dogs for the best advice on living. She’s taken the essential lessons learned to better and inspire the pet care industry for business owners and team members.
As a Big Picture Thinker, she shares in a way that is relatable, applicable, and speaks to the challenges pet care pros face in their everyday work. Always more than a stuffy presentation read from the screen, you can expect a beautiful and colorful slide deck, energy, and a session designed to create a lasting impact.
Austin has extensive experience bringing his passions to groups large and small. He like to connect with audiences using his dry humor and Dog Dad jokes, and he breaks down complex systems into easy-to-understand pieces. He’ll even wear one of my colorful “fish shirts” if you ask nicely (or, honestly, even if you don’t, he’ll probably still wear one). He loves talking about all things fish, aquarium systems, care for fish and reptiles, and troubleshooting.

hard & important conversations
After Morgan’s own experiences (plural) with burnout and the emotional challenges that come with working in pet care, she is dedicated to having space for conversations around the harder aspects of our work. Grief, pet loss, stressful circumstances, and burnout can interfere with Pet Professionals leading full, happy lives and enjoying their work. The more we discuss the unique challenges that come with pet care professions, the more we can normalize them. Following a year of her own losses, Morgan founded Memory Flame Candle Company. She welcomes conversations, podcasts, live or recorded interviews, panel discussions, and presentations on challenging topics:
- Burnout, and Burnout Prevention
- Normalizing grief
- Emotional costs of care giving
- Supporting clients as their pets age
for pet parents
As a recurring guest on a TV lifestyle show for the last 4 years, I love to bring my pet care knowledge to pet parents looking to help their pets live a full and happy life. Asking “If your dog could talk, what story would he tell about your life together?,” I’m focused on helping people explore life together with their pets to give them their best.
