I worked as a police officer for 15 years in Alberta, Canada and 5 years into my career, I had fellow Officers knock on my door to tell me that my Dad had been killed that morning by a 19 year old impaired driver in a stolen vehicle. My Dad was simply on his way to work in Alberta’s oilfield as a tank truck driver early one Sunday morning. He never made it to work and was never seen or heard again as he burned to death in his vehicle after being struck head on by a 19 year old impaired driver in a stolen welding truck. It took 5 days for authorities to positively identify my Dad’s body.
I left policing in 2014 and opened my own business. I now speak to multiple schools, businesses and organizations across Canada. I hope to branch out international one day soon! My presentation is quickly becoming one of the top impaired driving prevention presentations in Canada. To see more about my presentation, please go to my website www.AmandaOling.com.
I recently wrote and published my first book, titled “The Impact of One Decision”. I have book signings scheduled over the next few months. My book has been called brilliantly thought provoking, impactful, inspirational and emotional. It’s my entire story from the day my Dad was killed up to 2014 when I opened my own business. I show and discuss how one person’s decision to drive while impaired affected multiple lives, communities and businesses. I also show how the excuses of “I’m only hurting myself, what does it matter” and “but that’s the way I’ve always done it” are never valid excuses.
I have experience speaking with the media and am a professional keynote speaker. I look forward to hearing from people out there!
