Many presentation coaches are former actors who naturally love the spotlight.

I am not.

I’m an introvert who personally grappled with intense speech anxiety for 20 years.

I understand—at a gut level—how paralyzing anxiety can be. I also know how truly liberating it feels to break through this fear.

It is my life’s work to help people conquer their speaking anxiety.

Rather than tackle the problem at a superficial or generic level, I share proven strategies, tips, frameworks, and tools for managing anxiety from a physical, psychological, and organizational perspective.
