I wanted to be doing:
I wanted to help people with their most frightening endeavour in life: giving a presentation.
Born and raised in Portland, OR, I'm addicted to type two fun:
When I was 12-years-old, I was thrown into the deep end: I had to give a persuasive speech to my entire class. Armed with grit, a vivid imagination, and my wit, I went full throttle on my first speech. Unlike my classmates who felt like throwing up instead of speaking, I was elated to be giving a presentation! I persuaded 19 seventh graders that small dogs are superior to large dogs. At 12-years-old, I knew I was addicted to presenting. Public speaking is in my blood.
I’ve spoken for PDXWIT, Women’s Center for Leadership, WIFS Portland Chapter, Toastmasters, The Moth, and PitchFestNW.
When I’m not in Portland, you can most likely find me on Mt.Hood with my dog, Maggie.
