Hello! I am a public speaking coach and motivational speaker helping empower others to find their authentic voice. You can check my LinkedIn for my history/credentials, so let's get to the good stuff and why any of this matters. I spent the first 12 years of my career feeling pretty good but deep down knowing that I was capable of so much more (any of that ring true for you?!). The moment I decided I needed to take the next step (having NO CLUE what that next step was) the world offered me a career that **precisely** matched my passion and talents: public speaking coaching. This unlocked a lot of that potential I knew I had, and I became a person the former me would never recognize. The beauty of it all is that my transformation helps me assist in the transformation of others. But reading about it isn't as exciting as watching in living color: check out my "Disrupt Yourself" video on this transformation!! It's one of the funnest 5 minute talks I ever gave and is proof to me that if you're not having fun when you're "working" there might be something better for you out there. Let's explore that together! It sounds simplistic, I know. But if I hadn't experienced it for myself (and continue to experience it), I wouldn't believe that if you just "follow the thread" of what you love and what gives you joy, you'll create the life you've been looking for: I took a public speaking class offered by my employer at the time, fell in love with it, and pretty much insisted that become my job. And it did.
