Are you looking for a dynamic speaker, trained charity auctioneer, or emcee for your next event? Then you have come to the right place!
Whether it is a Keynote Presentation, a Workshop, Facilitating a Meeting or acting as your Master of Ceremonies, I will bring a high level of energy and engagement to your audience. Although I have extensive training in public speaking, the motivations behind my presentations are the challenges I have faced in life and the strategies I have used to manage them. I am a great cancer survivor and a surviving friend of those lost too soon.
I am a Past International Director and Accredited Speaker (one of only 75 world-wide) of Toastmasters International and a member of the National Speakers Association, National Auctioneers Association and the PA Auctioneers Association. My speaking topics relate to Communication Skills, Leadership, Humor and Healing, Business & Dining Etiquette and Motivation. I am the author of three books and contributing columnist to national and international publications. I am a proud Penn State University alumna with a Master’s and Bachelor’s degree in Speech Communication.
In 2015, I was chosen by the Huffington Post as one of the “15 Women Over 50” in the United States to watch. As a speech coach, I have helped leaders in education and business, political figures, and people from all walks of life become better presenters and communicators.
My strongest desire is to work with you to achieve the goals you have set for yourself. Whether you want to improve your own outlook on life, your speaking skills, your interpersonal skills or are looking for someone to help you motivate your members, build your business team, or identify goals for success--I want help you lay out a roadmap for success.
