The first time that I saw Kathy Buckley on Comedy Central, I was blown away. There, standing on stage, was a hard of hearing gal firing off jokes and one-liners. Every now and then, I would see her throw in a sign or two, perhaps out of habit or perhaps to connect with the many deaf and hard of hearing people who enjoy her comedy routines.
Kathy is still involved with comedy and currently working on a routine called “Puberty at 50.” She is a speaker who is in high demand and every time that I talk with her, I find that she’s flying off to one place or another. I once saw Kathy speak to group of parents and professionals, and I watched how she connected to everyone in the room with her stories and slices of inspiration. She is indeed, a master at public speaking. Kathy is also on the Anthony Robbins Life Mastery Classes.
Take a look at the awards she has won throughout the years:
Ovation Award: Best Writing
My daughter picked up her book, If You Could Hear What I See and read through it three times. She was so inspired by Kathy’s life, that she selected her book for an autobiographical book report for school.
