When her 5-year old son was first diagnosed with a life-altering disease, the first question Star Bobatoon asked was, “Why me?” Several years later she discovered the answer: so she could - from a place of experience and compassion - support, empower, and inspire other parents who have children with special needs.

Star Bobatoon is an accomplished attorney, dynamic trainer, and award-winning speaker whose high energy and engaging style make a lasting impact on her audiences and clients.

With over a decade of performance on stage, television, and the big screen, Star colors her timely and relevant messages with drama and humor.

Using her legal background, Star goes beyond inspiration to convey concrete ideas and practical tools that allow audiences to make real changes in their lives.  She  encourages her audiences and clients to embrace their inner light and become the STARs they were born to be.

Star is especially committed to organizations that support parents with special kids. She is a volunteer, speaker, and workshop leader for informal support groups and national organizations including Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD), Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Her greatest accomplishment is being the proud parent of "two of the most beautiful children in the history of children.” Her youngest is her daughter Xanthia, and her eldest is her son Hurricane. Hurricane has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and is the inspiration for her book, I Hate Muscular Dystrophy: Loving a Child with a Life-Altering Disease.
