• THIS IS FOR YOU

If you want to become the speaker you‘ve always dreamt of being, you’ve come to the right place.

How you speak determines your reality.

You want to speak and share your stories with confidence whether you’re talking to one person or to a thousand. You want to be approachable and credible when you speak.  Typical Public Speaking training teaches outdated “rules” and robotic movements. You are not a robot.  You are a human and you want to talk like one. 

You’ve got something to say and I’m here to help.

What you need to know about me:

I’m the CEO of Practically Speaking, LLC, host of the Practically Speaking Podcast and author of Minivan Mogul: A Crash Course in Confidence in For Women. My passion for all things speaking comes from spending nearly two decades as a Speech Language Pathologist, helping people regain the ability to speak after illness or injury. I’m a motivational speaker, facilitator, and mentor. I help others speak and share their stories with confidence using strategies I’ve learned the hard way throughout my career. I’m a nationally certified Speech Language Pathologist, have a background in adult neurology and emotional intelligence and am EQ-I 2.0 certified administrator. More importantly, I blend my scientific approach to speaking with my love of storytelling and humor into my work with clients.

Most importantly, I’m a mom, minivan driver and front-row fan of my speakers.
