So what makes someone want to become a leadership skills speaker and passionate about professional development?

Perhaps the bigger question: What makes someone want to actually speak… in public… for a living?

Everyone has a story! Mine starts back in eighth grade when I had to do an impromptu speech in English class. I quickly found out that I was one of the few people who loved public speaking! That love continued in high school, where I competed in weekend speech and debate tournaments.

I wasn’t exactly the cool kid back then, and let’s be honest. I’m not that cool today. I am, however, one of the lucky few who found something I loved before graduating high school. My passion for speaking stuck with me, and part of me still wishes I could hop on an unairconditioned school bus to compete in a weekend speech tourney. (I’m embarrassed I just put that in print.)

After working for various corporate retailers, I found my home in the world of training and development. After seeing so many great individual contributors promoted to leadership roles without any training, I knew something had to change.

No one means for it to happen, but all too often, leadership development is put off. It’s like hitting the snooze button. We can put it off a few times, but eventually, it catches up to us. Suddenly we have a new job and a new team, and we have no idea what we’re doing. Though we try our best to swim, most of the time we sink.

That’s where I come in. Whether in a keynote address or a breakout training session, I help high performers gain the skills they need to be successful leaders of people. I feel a good session is equal parts inspiration and actionable takeaways. Leadership is a skill, and with practice and dedication, decent managers can become great leaders.

What else should you know about me? Well, I’m a wife to a fantastic guy, a mom to an adorable son, and dog-mom to a crazy Shepard mix named Charleigh. I also love sitting on the couch with a dirty martini and watching Dateline NBC. (But that’s another story for another time.)
