I started out as a teacher and loved it. At the same time, I still harbored a secret love of public speaking and speech writing. I am now combining the two and want to reach as many people as possible. Public speaking is something that can be learned, it's not something you are born with.
As a speechwriter, I've written for CEOs, business owners, college presidents, and government officials. I've written many ceremonial speeches including awards speeches and wedding toasts. The principles of speech writing can be applied to any situation.
