The beginnings of my professional life started in New England prep schools. Early promotion to Director of Admissions then evolved to Assistant to the Head of School for Planning where I worked on strategic program development. This interest led me to obtain an MBA as I dove into the financial and management aspects of independent schools. My focus then shifted to curriculum development with my pursuit of a PhD in education at McGill. During this time, I first began teaching writing classes and doing independent consulting work. In 2014, I then began my work focused on helping academics present better. This work has since evolved to become my primary passion as my backgrounds in teaching, curriculum design, writing, marketing and strategic business development coalesced around helping people learn how to best convey the importance of their research and discoveries to a wide variety of audiences. Since 2014, I have developed a systematic approach to helping people hone their content, develop a strategic trajectory, create effective visuals, and develop a dynamic presence for everything from 3 minute thesis competitions to 8 minute business start-up pitches to 20 minute Ted-style Talks to hour+ long teaching workshops. In addition to coaching presenters, I also assist administrative organizers to help create dynamic, engaging events to showcase research. Whether in-person or online, whether young researchers trying to find their voice or seasoned professors trying to share a signature discovery of their professional career, whether sharing strategies in large group settings or coaching individuals over extended periods of time, my work seeks to help people continually improve as I challenge them to identify the most important aspects of their message, figure out how to connect with their audience, and deliver with a credibility-inspiring clarity.
