my story

A strong message is essential for presentations, which is why I love working with our clientele as a Senior Trainer at 2Connect. From my time on the Macintosh launch team for the Apple Computer, to my leadership and development roles at Vignette Corporation and Electronic Data Systems (EDS), I have devoted my career to helping people develop their communication and presentation skills through group facilitation and training services. I have worked to improve employee growth by establishing career development models and creating cross-cultural leadership solutions for international business units. My passion for serving others flows into my project at Kingdom Presenters, which I created to support communication in nonprofits and faith based communities.

Tell a story about something that makes you laugh.

What makes for a deep belly laugh for me is my family’s “inside jokes” that only we get. Sometimes all it takes is “The Look” to get us laughing.

What is your hidden talent?

Making Photo-books (the published kind) – I make them for work, school and family – averaging 1000 photos each.

What is your favorite food?

Chocolate! Although some say that is not a “Food”, I beg to differ – it’s part of the daily four food groups for me.

If you weren’t a training professional, what would you be?

Retired!  I can’t imagine doing anything else, it is such a rewarding career.
