After receiving my degree in Organizational Communication Arts from Cedarville University, Cedarville, Ohio, I have traveled extensively holding a variety of roles calling for my public speaking prowess. From working in Human Resources at Walt Disney World Co. presenting to recruiters, key staff, and interns, to working as a Sr. Research Analyst for the government providing briefings and presentations to key decision makers, I continue to capitalize on my strengths in front of people. As a PADI Platinum Elite Course Director, I have also worked extensively as a scuba diver educator teaching hundreds of students a variety of courses that qualify for college credit through the American Council on Education.
With the proper training and techniques, I have been very successful, receiving awards from both military and civilian agencies for my dedication to work and thorough, successful presentations in both small groups and in large assembly halls. I have also been published in formal military works and acclaimed for marketing and customer service presentations.
I am currently in pursuit of my PhD in Communication here in the greater New Jersey/New York City area.
