- MY JOURNEY: I have been on my own personal growth and speaking journey since the summer of 2004, and I want to help you leverage my experience to accelerate your own growth and that of your organization. I can still recall my first speech. My hands were shaking, my mouth was dry and I thought for sure that the people on the front row could see butterflies jumping out of my shirt. Even though I was nervous giving my first speech I was excited because I knew that it was part of the process of me learning how to be a more confident presenter and leader.

- MY PASSION: Since 2004, I have been speaking and facilitating workshops. In the last few years, I have facilitated over 20 full-day workshops as well as over 100 45-minute workshops and speeches. I love facilitating both in-person and virtual workshops.

- WHO I SERVE: As a 25-year corporate employee, I work with professionals with various levels of experience from students to seasoned corporate employees or entrepreneurs.

- VIRTUAL SPEAKING: Since March 2020, I facilitated a 9-week Financial Class, 5 multi-week training sessions, a 2-day Diversity & Inclusion workshop, multiple 20 minutes and above speaking/training sessions.
