About me

With 30 years’ experience in the communication field I have worked professionally as a communication specialist, a journalist, an editor, a community relations liaison, a director, a media analyst, and most recently as founder and CEO of Communication TwentyFourSeven, a communication coaching and consulting firm.


And for 17 of those 30 years, I taught courses in basic human communication, public speaking, business communication, and intercultural communication as a college professor. I have a bachelors and a masters in communication, and am currently working on my PhD in applied linguistics.

Most importantly, I am a human who wears many hats and as a result has had to learn to adapt to different audiences and different situations. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a friend, a co-worker, a teacher, a student, a veteran, a voter, a TEDx presenter, an author, and a cancer survivor.

I wholeheartedly believe the most important aspects of being a communication coach is authenticity and a desire to help others achieve their goals. As your communication coach, I promise to deliver skills training that fits your needs with dependability, honesty, and integrity. Contact me today for a free consultation.
