About Me

 The number one fear in America is public speaking. Who knew? But for me it is a thrill I cannot get enough of. Academically, I graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor's in Public Relations with a minor in Interpersonal Communication. I received a full-ride scholarship for my Master's Degree from CMU in Organizational and Public Communication. You could say most of my life has been on the stage, whether in theater or competitive speech. Over the past 20 years I have picked up various tricks to help others overcome their fear of public speaking. While I know it can be nerve wracking, my class is designed to help you overcome your fear but also have a good time while you do it. I look forward to seeing you in class!
