    About Eileen Grubba

    Eileen Grubba is an award-winning actress, a lifetime member of The Actors Studio, and has spent over 26 years on the stage. She can be seen recently in HBO’s Watchmen, CBS’s SWAT and ALL Rise, NBC’s New Amsterdam and Netflix’s The Politician, and just shot a Guest Star in ABC’s Stumptown. She has been in many films & TV shows, including: NBC’s Game of Silence, Sons of Anarchy, Criminal Minds, Bones, Fear The Walking Dead, HBO’s Hung & Enlightened, Benched, Instant Mom, CSI: Miami, The Mentalist, Cold Case, Nip/Tuck, The Closer, Monk, etc.

    She has been nominated three times for Best Actress awards for Indie films, with multiple wins for Best Ensemble Cast in the female lead. She has also won multiple awards for her disability-inclusive short films.

    Eileen was paralyzed from the waist down as a child after a vaccine attacked her spinal cord leaving her with a C1-C4 injury, and later beat cancer likely caused by radiation exposure during her medical battles. Doctors said she would never walk again, but she regained most of her mobility through relentless persistence and many surgeries.

    She is grateful to members of The Actors Studio, for teaching her to use her life challenges in her work.

    Eileen is an accomplished actress, writer, public speaker, and producer. She has years of experience in casting, has directed theater and films, and has been hired to write screenplays due to her ease with creating strong female characters. She is an advocate for the hiring of people with disabilities in film, television, and advertising, serves on the SAG/AFTRA National PWD Committee, and is a Brand Ambassador for Global Disability Inclusion. She was selected for the CBS Leadership Pipeline and is now going through the program for directing.

    A fighter all her life, Eileen refuses to give up her quest to create equal opportunity for people with disabilities, and believes inclusion in entertainment will create a world of greater acceptance for everyone. #ALLin

    "The Human/Animal Bond - A Relationship of Possibilities"

    with Tara Argall

    Wednesday, January 13, 2021
    6:00pm – 8:00pm (Arizona Time)

    Online via Zoom Video Conferencing Technology*

    Description

    The relationship between humans and animals serves many purposes. Traditionally animals have been a source of food, companionship, utility, transportation and so much more. If you have ever allowed yourself to have a close personal relationship with an animal you will understand the potential and depth our relationships can take. I will demonstrate first-hand the human animal bond and the communication process that can happen. There is a universal non-verbal language that we all can tap into and actually are born being able to access.

    I will be choosing one or more participants and demonstrate the communication process. I work from photos so have a photo of your companion ready to hold up to the camera if you are willing and are chosen. I will share stories from some of the most profound communications sessions that I have been a part of over the many years that I have done this work. We will talk about the conversations that can happen with your animal companions and how they can enhance your health, career, relationships, life directions and so much more. Anything is possible and I look forward to sharing this intimate and exhilarating conversation about animals, life, and the possibilities you never may have thought possible.

    About Tara Argall

    Tara was a mental health counselor for over 25+ years, she is also a non-verbal communicator with both humans and animals and has been all her life. Tara is also a healer and artist. She is the founder and creator of The Trailblazing Communications Whole Life System, a system that offers tools for communicating with people who are non-verbal and animals. She is known for her ability to help humans and animals work, live and thrive together honoring both of their true spirits and missions in life.
