Lisa Morrisseau & Nikki Swirsky, Speakers
Lisa and Nikki are speakers from Visions and Voices, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Speaker’s Bureau.
Lisa has learned a lot about herself and FASD through raising her three children. She enjoys telling stories of the challenges she has faced within health and education systems in a humorous and engaging way. Lisa says, “we all struggle, but we all struggle a little more or a little differently.”
As a single mom, Nikki relies on her relationships with her mom and siblings as she raises her daughter. Diagnosed with FASD as an infant, she has suffered from numerous health problems throughout her life. Nikki says, “I know I’m different, but I’ve also been taught that I can do anything if I just set my mind to it.”
