Travis Lloyd with Samantha Moe
Travis Lloyd is a Speaker, Author, Trainer, and Coach who works to inspire progressive systematic change while promoting, setting and achieving big goals, both personally and professionally. Lloyd followed his passion for teaching and inspiring after an extensive career in health care as a Trauma Nurse, Psychiatric Nurse, Life Coach, and Mental Health Crisis Worker. This professional journey didn’t come easy as with many people, he faced a few challenges growing up. He now uses the stories of breaking through negative barriers to achieve more to connect to the hearts and minds of audience members. Such experiences lit a fire in Travis to remind those who work in public and private serving professions of their “Why”. Travis advocates that “no matter where you come from or where you want to go, it is possible”. He is the Vice President of the national non-profit Foster Care Alumni of America, Host of the Fostering Change Podcast, Author of Overcoming Emotional Trauma, and contributor to multiple national magazines.
Samantha Moe is a certified Parent and Life coach who grew up being told, “Everyone has a gift.” Her gift led her to completing a Master’s degree in Communication Disorders and embarking upon a journey for uncovering the gifts of children with intense behaviors. She quickly learned that in order to truly improve outcomes it was critical to explore outside-the-box strategies. Combining a strong passion for brain science, mindfulness, and transformation Samantha pioneered a new path for gaining children’s cooperation and helping the toughest children develop self-control.
She coined this new path the Mad2Glad Blueprint and it is grounded in Samantha’s strong background of direct services to families. Her work has evolved into coaching parents of all types of children to dramatically reduce defiance and disrespect and re-establish confidence and authority. Inspired by caring professionals who are devoted to children’s well-being, Samantha Moe is the creator of the leading Parent Coach Certification program that equips industry professionals with the tools and resources they need to transform their clients lives and find joy in their work.
