Gail Lovelace Menasco is located in the heart of central Oregon, in Bend Oregon and is a female motivational speaker and comedic storyteller, who uses her personal stories to entertain and connect with the audience. Gail will inspire you to persevere through challenges, think out of the box, and to overcome fear. When Gail encounters a challenge or ‘fails’ at something, she sees the lesson and story in her failures… and when the failures involve sharks and skydiving, well then that becomes pure comedy.
Gail uses her stories to connect and relate to people and uses her experiences, many times in a comedic way, to share an idea and invoke thought. She kicked off the TEDxBend event in May 2017 and has written and performed her one-woman show, “Excuse Me, May I Borrow Your Underwear,” and headlined at a recent storytelling event in Portland for Solo Speak! Gail has delighted audiences at Ignite Bend 7, Ignite Bend 9, Ignite Bend 11 and has enjoyed being a part of Dan Cohen’s Twisted Sisters Productions storytelling shows in Bend, Oregon.
