I'm a seasoned, inspirational speaker who has spoken at professional conferences, universities and colleges, high schools, museums, libraries, and corporate events.
For schools: Through sharing my story of failure, I help empower students to actualize their full creative potential.
For museums: I teach people the art of deep-looking and how to verbally respond to the visual arts, thereby encouraging them to participate in art across cultures.
For corporations: I provide inspirational talks that beg employees to consider, "What's the portal to your creativity," so that they might find a new path to innovation.
I'm experienced with most any format (e.g. interactive lecture, speech/lecture, slide presentation, literary reading, artist talk, generative workshop, facilitating breakout and Q&A sessions).
I look forward to working with you!

Microsoft Marketing Senior Manager:
I haven’t been able to attend the virtual café in a long time, and when I saw the description I did what I could to make the time. It was so interesting to listen to her—and it really made me think a lot about my day to day creative process which has felt stagnant for a while now. Timing was perfect to re-group. (Cyndi)
Accenture Client Account Manager:
Baugher’s workshop […] presented questions and meditations that led me to an expanded and increased engagement with the visual arts. I’m incredibly grateful for her insight.” (Allison)
Maryhill Museum of Art Curator of Education:
Baugher’s relationship with Maryhill Museum of Art began with the publication of her book, The Ekphrastic Writer. This publication is an essential tool for art museums looking for ways to engage new audiences in exciting ways to look at their collections… and perhaps find new interpretations. Ms. Baugher launched her book via a sold-out zoom event. During this event, she educated nascent ekphrastic writers on ways to begin the process. She not only inspired our participants by reading her original ekphrastic poetry, but she gave them an opportunity to begin their own process. Her easy, approachable style engaged this all-ages audience, and she connected beautifully. She was generous with her time, extending the end-time to answer all questions and respond to all comments.
