I specialize in storytelling: online, onstage and on the printed page. Storytelling is a powerful way to convey a message, and I do it effectively in any medium.

I use storytelling as a tool to educate and engage, strategically wrapping facts and data in personal stories that bring them to life, generate empathy and make a lasting impact. I also advise organizations on storytelling strategies and present training on using storytelling to improve communication, public education and advocacy. In addition, I offer individual speaker coaching.

My decades of experience performing in and directing live theatre prepared me well to be a speaker coach and a polished public speaker. Just ask anyone who saw my IGNITE talk at the 2014 Netroots Nation conference, where I used Obamacare success stories to demonstrate the value healthcare reform delivers.

I’m comfortable talking about any topic, too. My on-camera experience includes moderating TEDMED Great Challenges panels. I’ve also been a guest on many radio shows including the nationally syndicated ‘To the Point.’
