I have over 15 years of competitive speaking and coaching experience. As a speaker, I have three published orations and have since coached 8 published orations. My coaching experience spans from working with timid high school freshmen to high-ranking government officials. Prior to my university teaching position I worked as a communications consultant to the federal government. Additionally, I have worked and volunteered on numerous political campaigns. Working with others to become better speakers is truly my passion.

In my free time I enjoy cooking, fashion, running and politics.
