Thank you for visiting my speaking page. As an author and former marketing director, I understand the importance of captivating an audience.
As a communicator, I am especially aware of the need for speakers to connect with an audience and leave them with practical takeaways.
I give various workshops on the craft of writing and storytelling. I am also a keynote speaker, focusing on living a purposeful and passionate-filled life. My passion is writing, and my purpose is to help others. And we cannot fulfill our purpose if we are not doing our passion.
