Jody Cantrell Dyer
I’ve loved writing since I was a child. My beloved crippled beagle Bell kept me company as I daydreamed on paper. Each of us is imperfect. Bell had backward knees, but a calm disposition and sweet nature made her an all-time favorite pet. Like Bell, each of us is imperfect, but each of us has something important to share with others, whether that’s a well-written essay, persuasive speech, eulogy, novel, memoir, or legacy. I welcome the opportunity to help you communicate your unique message in a powerful way.
With my own work, I write and speak to enlighten, encourage, and entertain. I use laughter and compassion to help people “think outside the barn” and SEE MORE. When speaking, I customize messages to match audience demographics and each organization’s needs/purposes. I work with groups of all sizes including book clubs, church groups, civic clubs, high school classes, faculties, senior centers, small business owners, teacher in-service sessions, sororities, professional practices, corporations, and fundraising event audiences. While many topics are of a serious nature, I’m a humorist at heart. No matter the topic, I work hard to bring insight and inspiration through candid talk and engaging anecdotes.
