Welcome to my site! Whether you are someone who has to speak in public because of your job or you would like to speak up about a local issue of concern or you just want to get more comfortable speaking to people in public, you’ve come to the right place. This is a safe space for you learn about speaking and using your voice, strategize about what to say and how to say it and then get out there and speak!
I have been teaching and/or coaching public speaking, argumentation, persuasion and more for over 20 years at the college level. I coach intercollegiate competitors in all aspects of public speaking and argument for a variety of audiences. I have helped commencement speakers improve their speeches and delivery.
I have also worked with completely novice public speakers in public speaking classes and workshops. I have worked with those who have high levels of anxiety about public speaking, those who were a little too comfortable with public speaking and all those in between.
The bottom line is that no matter who you are or what you plan to do, I can help you become a more effective speaker. I offer personal coaching, face-to-face or long distance. I am currently working on putting together online workshops that will help you reach your goals for a lower price point. And you can access materials and guidance for free via my blog posts. Be sure to check those out.
You have a voice. Use it!
