Dessie is available for virtual and in-person speaking engagements.
Dessie is the founder and executive director of Dessie Hall (DH) Consulting.
Dessie had four head surgeries, three of which were brain surgeries. After overcoming these battles, she became a health advocate for those battling the same illnesses. In addition to that, she suffers with alopecia. She started a support group to inspire others to embrace their journey.
As an independent consultant, Dessie trains, inspires, and teaches students and advisors how to work together as a team, resolve issues, recruit and retain members, plan and host quality programs, and create a culture of caring.
Today, she advocates for people with rare brain conditions. Dessie started the Warriors with IIH, CSF Leak, and Hydrocephalus (WICH) Support Group in August 2019. She connects with warriors from around the world to offer tips, encouragement, and emotional support. She also provides ongoing support to warriors and their families.
As a health advocate, she teaches others how to advocate for themselves and make the most out of medical visits. She highly encourages people to seek a second opinion when surgery is recommended.
