Communication Coach & Trainer
I equip Cru staff members and students with communication skills that will amplify their impact for Christ. These skills will enable them to speak in front of groups with confidence, tell "God stories" that touch hearts, and connect more effectively with their audience.
Conference Planning & Production

I wear a lot of hats to keep things running smoothly for our communication training events, such as Comm Lab and Emcee Lab. Advance planning, promotion, and preparation of training material keep me busy year-round.

Creative Communication

Whether it's through writing, video editing, web design, or copy editing, I love honing a message that will be expressed through words and visuals. Check out the Rock Your Meeting site to see a web-based training project that used my writing, web design, and video editing skills.
