Having a gregarious nature and natural story telling and writing ability, I majored in Speech Communication at California State University Hayward-East Bay. There I joined the speech team, winning first place awards in Persuasive Speech, Oral Interpretation, and Debate. Next, I achieved my Master's Degree in Rhetoric Theory, Public Speaking and Speech Communications. In this extensive program, I taught five college classes per semester, while attending six graduate courses--each requiring frequent superior research papers.
Simultaneously, I was a Debate and Oratory coach, training and teaching undergraduate students to participate in Speech tournaments at prestigious colleges and universities in the country.
Recruited to and promoted rapidly in advertising, I oversaw groups of five-twenty plus people. I taught comprehensive research skills as well as writing and presenting complicated media plans to clients. All of these people have been promoted to higher positions at advertising agencies and clients.
Throughout my career in advertising, I presented persuasive speeches for media campaigns to the heads of companies such as, Gerber Baby Food, S.C. Johnson, Mattel Toys, Tyco Toys, Disneyland Parks and Hotels, The Home Depot, among others. My presentations consistently resulted in recommendations on where to advertise and $MM increase in their budgets.
I am most proud of my success at helping people research, outline, use correct grammar and sentence variety to write quality papers, enhance K-12 English Language Arts skills, influence college grades, present a motivating speech and assist in writing a dazzling website.
