Hello Performers!

It is often very loud in the Big Top Tent at the Caregiving Circus.  I’m sorry if I couldn’t hear you!  This is why I carry a megaphone around!  Just so you and I can chat one-on-one and not have to compete with all the circus performers – just fill out this form and I’ll get back with you as soon as I can.

In case you really want to meet me in person, here are the places I have been in the past and where I will be in the future!  Where in the World IS the Reluctant Ringmaster??

Stepping on Legos and Cleaning up Poop

Topic: Self-Care for Leaders, Teams, and Organizations

Participants will be taken on a personal journey by presenter Jackie Schwabe as she discusses how she had to learn how to prioritize self-care. A mother of four children, ages 3-11 years old (including one on the Autism spectrum), she will describe her personal journey as a caregiver.  Combining comedy with candor, she will share the challenge of finding time to shower more than once a week while washing a poop collage off a wall, running a startup, taking care of her home, working as a vice president of Leadership Research at North of Center, participating in her children’s school activities, being a good wife, and taking care of two aging parents.
