Maybe not, but I think I’ve seen you around.

You want to do the kind of work that changes the world or maybe just your world by paying your bills
(and that’s cool), but…

… you think you’re past that magical age where you can improve your communication skills, so

… you avoid any situation that puts you or your words on the spot, and

… your brilliant ideas stay trapped inside your head.

I get it!

and I’m a language and communication coach. I help women communicate their way to better careers…and better lives.

I’ve witnessed firsthand from years of language & literacy tutoring that a lack of confidence can suck the life out of your ideas – and your opportunities.

This lack of confidence is the bully that makes you shrink in front of someone you think is smarter, more educated, or more articulate.  It’s what keeps you from sharing your voice. And it can strike regardless of gender, age, or even native language. Because of it, I’ve whispered, mumbled, and stayed quiet more times than I can count. And I bet you have, too.

That’s why I decided to put both my passion and my nerdy background to good use and focus on creating a space with you in mind, a space where you can stop translating in your head and start speaking your ideas out loud, uninhibited by verb tenses, vocabulary, or wavering self-confidence.

Oh, and here’s my nerdy background in a nutshell:

^

A degree in communication with loads of coursework in linguistics, language education, dyslexia studies, and business communication in English and Spanish.

^

15+ years of corporate experience, most of which I’ve spent organizing and scratching out words for corporate lawyers (who happen to be some of the wordiest, pickiest people on earth).

^

A weird obsession with the brain, which  led to my switch from tutoring to language & communication coaching as quicker, more brain-friendly way to improve speaking and writing.

^

A penchant for organizing, allowing me to help you design goals you actually care about (not just generic goals laid out in some syllabus).

When I’m not working, listmaking, or coaching, I’m hanging out with my family. Or I’m hanging around the house in my yoga pants that have not once seen the likes of a yoga mat – usually curled up with a good book, listening to old records, or shamelessly binging on YouTube videos.

So, now that we’ve gotten to know each other a little bit, you can learn more about working with me here or send me a note.

Thanks for taking the time to get to know me. I can’t wait to get to know you better!
