Division C Director

I joined Toastmasters because I wanted to help someone I loved. Today after twelve years that goal hasn’t changed, but my horizons have expanded and there are more people that I can reach and help.
Over the years many people have coached and encouraged me and now I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to do the same for others.
Toastmasters has impacted both my personal and professional life. My husband has joined me on this journey because he saw the way it positively impacted my ability to communicate.

I have been involved with Toastmasters since 2010. I have served in every club officer role and was an area director in 2013. I joined Toastmasters to improve my speaking ability, and I have stayed with Toastmasters these many years to help others grow. I became an area director because I want to help clubs grow.
