Whether you're addressing an intimate group or an audience of thousands, public speaking can be pretty nerve-racking. Sometimes your palms get sweaty, sometimes your voice cracks like the second coming of puberty - I've been there. Thankfully after struggling as the shy, introverted kid for years, I've finally got the hang of it. And ironically enough, my career now depends on my ability to be an effective speaker and communicator.
My biggest goal with this workshop is to guide you toward being a more poised, genuine speaker. I'll prepare you to develop and deliver content, share ideas and tell stories that create a space for audiences to relate, engage and act.

I grew up extremely shy. I went from being the girl in elementary school who barely said a word - and wrote her answers on a piece of paper because she was too afraid to raise her hand - to the captain of my high school debate team. Armed with a love for public speaking, I went on to study Communications graduating with a degree in Television & Radio and spent a number of years as an online radio personality and working in project management before committing to a career in education and social good.
As a social entrepreneur, I've engaged audiences of over 5,000 as a speaker and have been invited to speak at events for CreativeMornings, Democracy Prep, New York Daily News and more. As a public speaking coach and consultant, I've had the pleasure of working with some amazing individuals and companies including Klout, Grind and Startup Institute.
Outside of the aforementioned, I'm the co-founder and host of The Hall Pass Tour; a nationwide concert and event series designed to get underserved youth excited about leveraging higher learning to pursue their dreams.
