Most of us reach points in our lives where making a change feels necessary. We might have to discard a toxic relationship, move to a new neighborhood or quit the job we’ve been in for so very long. We evolve at multiple times in our lives, but most of those changes aren’t huge leaps.

Sometimes though, a change of scenery isn’t enough and we need to really shake things up. Karinda Dobbins, our next inspirational speaker, did just that.

After years in the corporate world, she not only needed to get out — she flipped the intense and serious nature of her career in biotech upside down, and is now a stand-up comedian, writer and actor. Her career experiences fold into her messages, but her spirit has a newfound sense of joy.

We’ve all heard that laughter is one of the most healing powers and Karinda is living proof. We think you’ll love her story and laugh at the telling.

We’re so lucky to be hosted again in Nicole’s home, where the talk will be real, our conversation will be open, real, and the flow will undoubtedly leave us all relieved and smiling.

In Parlay House style, there will be food, wine, and a refreshingly warm group of women excited to get to know you better.

We’d love for you to join us, and hope you’ll bring a friend along for the ride.


  • Arrive between 6:00pm and 6:30pm.
  • The talk will begin at 7:00pm.
  • Event will conclude at 8pm.

This event is hosted by our LA Local Instigator, Nicole Ward-Parr. You’ll receive specific address and location details after signup.

We can’t wait to Parlay with you!
