 “The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives.”  Anthony Robbins

For me, the study and practice of communication is a way of life. I am committed to facilitating a learning experience that is rigorous, inspiring and empowering. I teach a variety of classes, often working with "real world" clients.  

I help my students understand not only the theories of communication, but also how these theories can be applied to every aspect of life, academically, professionally and personally. As a result my students have received numerous local, regional, national and international awards. 

The future is limitless – I want to help you “unleash your power.”
