Introducing speaker, Mimi Matthews, known as "Passionista At Large"!

Mimi is a "been-in-the-trenches" inspirational speaker, a retired elementary school teacher (part of the trenches), mom to two special needs adopted children (another trench), a singer, a writer, an encourager, and a certified sexual health educator. With warmth and humor she shares the life skills learned while navigating those trenches.

She describes being a Passionista At Large as someone who is on the prowl to "Inform, Inspire, and Ignite!" It's her purpose to empower and encourage through words--both written and spoken--believing that our beliefs dictate our behavior. She is passionate about helping us believe the best about ourselves.

Mimi designs unique greeting cards to fulfill that purpose. Purchase her cards at
