"I get to do this for a living?"
Sometimes I have to just pinch myself. For almost 20 years I've been fortunate enough to get paid to talk. Literally. Being a professional speaker is exactly what I've wanted to do since 11th grade when I competed in the Rotary 4-Way Test Speech Contest and placed first in my school. From then on it was my mission to become a professional speaker.
After four years of undergrad at Bluffton University in Ohio (where I continued to find ways to present - can you say group project!) and two years of graduate school at Bowling Green State University I decided it was the perfect time to pursue my passion. Ever since I've been traveling, speaking, presenting, training, and dancing across the globe.
I even earned the CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) from the National Speakers Association. A designation held by less then %10 of the global speaker population (wait...there's a global speaker population?).
My aim is always the same. Entertain and educate. Make people laugh and make people think. Time is our most precious resource and if someone is going to give me theirs - I want to make sure I'm giving them something of value in return. It is an honor to speak for a living and do my best to never forget that. There's lots more of course but this isn't about me - it's about you and your organization. How may I serve?
