A dental hygienist of 30 + years, I know the business of dentistry! By combining a professional speaking career with clinical practice expertise, I bring a unique perspective to diverse business cultures around the world. As a global speaker, business consultant, workshop facilitator, corporate coach / educator, speaking coach and highly skilled dental hygienist, my dynamic presentation style motivates the audience to take action.
I have presented a wide range of topics to audiences throughout the world. My diverse career path focuses on: Communicate With Influence consulting, dental practice team management, and corporate team education.
I am a committed member of the National Speakers Association, which promotes the highest standards of professional speaking partnered with lifelong learning.
In 2017-18 I had the honor of serving as President in the National Speakers Association Northwest Chapter. I also received my CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) Award in 2018.
Fewer than 12% of global speakers obtain this designation and I am one of three Registered Dental Hygienists internationally that have been recognized.
As a virtual veteran of 2 decades, I became a Certified Virtual Presenter (CVP) with eSpeakers in 2020.
After working in Singapore for six years, my husband and I relocated to the Northwest for 20 years. In 2019 we moved to Park City, UT.
My passions in life include triathlons, cycling, swimming, snowboarding, and travel.
