I HELP GROWTH-FOCUSED CREATIVES
Are you a creative professional who has the experience, credentials and talent to get to the next level of your career, but you aren't getting the recognition you deserve or sometimes struggle to stand out in your organization or field? Are you interested in a promotion but know you need to level up your presentation skills to secure the job? Maybe maybe you're an introvert who dreads speaking up in front of others, but you know that's the key missing piece to the high-achieving professional success you desire. Or maybe you dream of stepping out of the shadows and into the spotlight but would like a guide to help you along this scary new path.
I know the feeling. Once an extremely shy, quiet girl, I used to be TERRIFIED of walking onto a stage by myself, let alone speaking up in a voice that was loud enough so that everyone could hear me. Then when I finally FOUND my voice, I discovered that I had NO IDEA what I wanted to say or how to say it effectively. And yet today I regularly sing, speak and perform both online and in person. I DELIVER virtual workshops to international audiences and actually ENJOY NETWORKING with other creative professionals and community leaders around the world. I had to LEARN how to find my voice, how to speak up and do so with presence to engage with those listening. And you can, too!
My professional experience in public relations and communication roles for nonprofit organizations, culture/tourism, international business and state government have taught me the power of having a clear, concise message and knowing how to deliver it in a charismatic way. And my background as a professional musician has shown me how to harness that power of presence in real time to become a more magnetic performer. Learning these skills has changed my life for the better, which is why I am so passionate about helping other creative professionals step outside their comfort zones, find their authentic voice, engage with their audience on a deeper level and lead more fulfilling lives as a result.
