Personal Growth Speaker

Tory is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, The Shift, which is her poignant and funny 2013 account of how she lost 62 pounds in a year.

A conversation with a TV executive gave Tory the inspiration she needed to conquer her life-long battle with weight. She was ready to make a major shift in the way that she looked, felt and lived.

That experience taught her that any kind of personal or professional change is possible with her unique five-step method of shifting, which she shares with audiences everywhere.

Tory and her husband, Peter, live in New York City with their twins, Emma and Jake, and a sweet beagle named Marly.
