In this motivational presentation, Bethany shares that life's most valuable lessons can be learned in the simplest of things: buying a slice of pizza, going on a first date, or crossing a busy street. Teens and grandparents all relate to Bethany's sense of humor and brutal honesty. Her stories are about living, really living, with exactly what we are given—no more, no less.
I would highly recommend Bethany as a speaker. Her authentic voice characterizes her journey the same way her memoir does using humor and grace.

HOW TO BE LOVED?
Anyone who has ever struggled with their own body image can immediately identify with this story. It is honest and hilarious and I couldn't put it down.
Bethany writes in such beautiful detail, that I've found myself thinking about certain scenes as if they were my own memories.
Bethany Meloche is a renowned motivational speaker, patient advocate, and international consultant. She is the author of the award-winning memoir, "How Should a Body Be?", which tells the story of her journey with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and her quest for self-acceptance.
With 30 countries and over 30 states under her belt, Bethany has had the opportunity to visit some of the most exotic places on Earth and have some pretty wild experiences, like riding on camel-led carts in India, climbing stone monasteries in Bulgaria and even finding a "Happiness Machine" deep in the woods of Austria (which, let's be real, is way cooler than finding a four-leaf clover).
Bethany is a force to be reckoned with, a science graduate from Berkeley and a student of the philosophies of Pema Chodren and Byron Katie. She is trained in self-inquiry methods and has been featured in various publications including San Francisco’s Mercury News and London’s Metro.
As a private international consultant, Bethany helps select clients navigate the digital world for patient communities. She is also a top grossing independent fundraiser and an active advocate, speaking to world-class researchers to bring change for the patient community.
When she's not traveling or working, Bethany can be found shopping for experiences, building her personal library, and learning about nootropics and body hacks to reach her biomechanical potential. She also loves mid-century modern architecture, has a passion for sausage dogs, and enjoys building Lego models, officiating weddings, and dining at Dishoom.
