Public Speaking

Do you need help with the fear of public speaking? Public speaking is rated as the number one fear of all people-young and old. Besides practical tips to feel relaxed and self-confident, you will also learn to incorporate ways to build rapport with your audience and command attention. Decide whether you need to inform, persuade entertain or a combination. How important are props, music, your voice tone and PowerPoint? Learn the answers to leave a memorable impression with your message. I have a Masters in Education and taught public speaking at University of Phoenix and Hewlett-Packard (individual basis).

I have worked with kids and adults successfully with ADHD one-on-one and in experiential classrooms. I also participated in trainings for ADHD coping skills developed by a psychologist. In 2013 I was accepted and completed the Duke Integrated Health Coaching Foundation. My BA is in Psychology and Masters in Educational Technology. Also I took 300 hours of Whole Foods Nutrition. I,along with researchers, believe that children's food, exercise and medication affects their focus. I currently work with students to help them focus, catch up and EXCEL by learning strategies to accommodate their learning style.
