“I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.” 

-Charles Swindoll

From the first time I watched “The Wizard of Oz” at age 5, my path in life was set. Something about that tornado just drew me in! Since then, I’ve enjoyed a weather-related career that’s spanned more than 30 years: from serving as a military forecaster providing weather briefings to Air Force fighter pilots, to my dream job as an on-air meteorologist at The Weather Channel. Throughout my journey, one thing has remained constant: in order to be successful, I’ve had to build trust and confidence from my audience by employing great communication skills. That’s why Speechworks is such a natural fit for me. I get the chance to help other professionals build that same level of trust and create a connection with their listeners, and achieve their own success as a result!
