Marnie Power is a storyteller at heart. Her goal with any audience is to capture their imagination, to inspire and educate as she weaves aspirational ideals about the power of play with a strong evidence-base, while leaving practical tips on how to play with play.

She's been invited to speak nationally and internationally about Forest and Nature School, outdoor play, and risky play.
