  • You'll gain new empowering beliefs so you can stand taller, think more clearly, and breathe more easily when it's your turn up front. (Plus you'll have awareness of which thoughts have been undermining your confidence.)

  • You'll have a new way to respond to your body when it's experiencing those performance jitters

  • You'll have several different approaches for the opening of your talk, so you can feel solid from the minute you start speaking (and maybe even look forward to starting your presentation).

  •  You'll have a whole new approach to being the center of attention.

When I was an actress, my perfectionism and fear led me to have stomach aches before performing.
(Even though I was getting great feedback & reviews!)

I lost my joy BUT became determined to MASTER my fear

 

I am excited to share with you what I have learned!

I've helped over 1000 public speaking clients build their public speaking confidence and skills

I've led public speaking  workshops  at over 60 different companies

 

I wrote Your Guide to Public Speaking, a book chock-full of tips, strategies, and case studies

 

I taught acting for over 18 years at Boston University's Film School and Boston Acting Classes (a company founded by my husband and me

 

For over two decades, I acted in plays, films, and commercials

And I received my MFA in Acting from the Actors Studio Drama School

ABOUT THE COACH​

​I love helping innovators and visionaries speak with power and ease so they can change the rooms or zooms they are in without self-doubt or losing precious sleep.

Through online courses, one-on-one coaching, and customized corporate workshops, I help these game-changers experience public speaking as an adventure with exciting risks, discoveries, and massive rewards rather than as a horror movie with terror, hiding, and dread.

 

I have coached a wide variety of individuals who are making waves in their industries - scientists, entrepreneurs, executives, activists, doctors, chefs, lawyers, artists, a top dog trainer, and also a mountaineer who completed the Explorer’s Grand Slam (think Everest, the Poles, and more!)
