“ Accelerating women to be influential leaders with greater impact ”

I created Etc. Executive Training and Coaching to help people improve their communication skills. It is my passion. Using the latest research from the Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, and national research studies (along with plenty of humor), I teach executives and employees to tailor their communication to different personalities, situations and relationships.
My keynotes, training and workshops give participants:
  • A ready-to-use toolbox of communication principles.
  • Clear, actionable steps that can radically change relationships at work and at home.
  • A positive plan for dealing with organizational change.



I am honored to be a Certified Speaking Professional. CSP is the only earned designation by the National Speakers Association. Fewer than 8% of professional speakers worldwide have this earned designation.

In July 2014, I published “It’s HOW You Say It,® Effective Business Communication Skills,” which tackles the common problems in business communication, improving leadership practices, and using relationships to create incredible improvements in your business.
