Testimonials

“Working with Dr. Kristie Overstreet was such a pleasure. From the first moment that we connected with her to secure a speaking engagement, to the day of the event – she was communicative, pleasant, proactive, and professional. When we were initially looking for a keynote speaker for our LGBTQIA+ healthcare symposium, we weren't sure of the topics that we wanted. Dr. Kristie provided us with multiple options and worked with us to narrow our topics and create a great basis for our symposium. During her presentations, she engaged staff and had everyone in the audience actively participating. We are 5 days past he symposium now, and have had multiple attendees commenting about her dynamic speaking style and how they learned so much from her. This symposium has been so impactful on our staff, with Dr. Kristie's presentations as the central theme, that we are excited to bring her back for another presentation soon!”
