Meet the speechwriter

Who I AM


​With over twenty years of experience as a writer, speaker, and performer, I bring to my work a true passion for the spoken word. 

I’ve worked in a wide variety of industries, including high-tech, education, and music. As a former professional singer, I have a keen understanding of the “musicality” of great speeches. One of my greatest strengths is synthesizing large amounts of information  into a speech that’s focused and compelling—perfect for live audiences. In short, I see speechwriting as my professional “calling,” and I love what I do.

When I’m not writing speeches or spending time with my husband and two sons, I enjoy hiking up mountains, running half-marathons, and reading nonfiction.
