While I was still in college, my wife-to-be asked me what I wanted to do.
“I think I want to be a professional speaker.”
I had attended conferences, I had seen speakers and I thought I could do that too. But it took me several years to figure out how one does that and what exactly I was going to talk about.
I have a BA in Psychology, a BA in Sociology and a MA in counseling and I spent the first part of my career working with adolescents and adults in a variety of mental health settings. I eventually migrated into training and was a Learning and Development Consultant in a large healthcare organization for six years.
There I developed, delivered, and managed a management education series for both new/emerging leaders and seasoned leaders.
