Executive Speech Coach and Trainer
Before becoming an ICF Certified coach and joining Articulation in 2016, I spent 14 years as a corporate coach and trainer in the retail sector. As a coach, I specialize in helping clients discover their authentic voice and unlocking the their confidence to achieve their goals. As a facilitator, I have created and led training and development courses for groups of up to 50. I work hard to keep sessions lively and curious, asking questions before answering them and creating an environment that fosters adult peer learning.
In addition to coaching and facilitation, I am a professional theatre director and actor. My years of experience — on and off stage — taught me how to bring out the creativity in anyone seeking to engage an audience.
I graduated from Miami University with degrees in Theatre Performance and Economics and studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, and with the SITI Company. I live in Columbus with my husband.
