Along with writing and counseling, I’ve facilitated individual and group retreats. And I enjoyed numerous speaking engagements at universities, churches, non-profit and civic organizations.
I’ve had the wonderful privilege of being trained by Legendary Les Brown which has been transformational for me at this season of my life. This journey into public speaking is certainly a calling as I inspire audiences into the deeper places of their hearts. My training also includes Toast Master’s and I’m certified through SCORRE and have been personally coached by Ken Davis, founder of Dynamic Communicators International.
