for Executives, Nonprofit Leaders & Ambitious Artists
If you have a presentation looming you'd like to deliver with confidence and ease, I can help you find your story, organize what you have to say and home in on your most important message.
In one-on-one public speaking coaching sessions or in a workshop tailored for your team, you'll learn how to calm your nerves and connect with your audience. I bring 25 years of experience in corporate communications and fundraising and as a writer, author and solo performer. My specialty is working with executives, scientists, introverts, nonprofit leaders and ambitious artists.
