Speaker, Teacher, Storyteller

Did I ever mention that I also enjoy working as a speaker?

It’s true!

For almost 30 years I’ve stood in front of audiences and shared experiences, knowledge and personal stories gained as a sales rep and marketing professional.

Does your company, association, community service group or local chamber need an entertaining, funny, passionate, motivational and educational speaker to liven up an upcoming meeting?

I can help.

Here's what some audience members of past presentations had to say about me:
