What people are saying about

Dr. Deitra Hickey

…Her analogies, sense of humor, and transparency was genius. She made the audience challenge their thinking while making them feel validated.

I have never waited in a line after a presentation to simply shake hands and thank the speaker for such an amazing job.

Debbie Patton

Cedar Creek Women’s Conference

…I was pleasantly surprised to hear Dr. Hickey discuss life balance and stress reduction in such an entertaining and informative way.

She related with the audience and I was so surprised that an hour had passed because we were all so engaged with everything she was saying…

Chris Kaiser

Employer’s Association Conference

Dr. Hickey delivered a message that our leaders really needed to hear in a way was relatable, humorous and authentic. Her message of maintaining perspective and better balancing stress resonated well with our diverse audience of healthcare executives, leaders and physicians. She challenged our leaders to consider the impact stress and mindset can have on their work life, personal life and health and offered practical tips to overcome stressors and those times when we lose perspective. After the presentation, we witnessed some of our most reserved guests hugging and thanking Dr. Hickey for sharing her stories and reminding us what is truly important in life. She was a breath of fresh air to our event and we are so grateful to have this type of talent right in our own community.
