Become the Speaker You Know You’re Meant to Be.

What would it feel like to finally deliver your message and your story with full power & grace?


Elevate your brand, attract high-end clients and continue to grow a thriving business – all as a natural outcome of stepping into the speaker you are meant to be.

Do any of these sound like you?

  • You are just so ready to share your story and lessons learned in a bigger way.
  • You’ve always seen yourself on a bigger stage – online and offline – inspiring others with your message.
  • You enjoy speaking and are pretty good at it – and you also know there’s an even more powerful speaker and leader within you. You’re ready to meet that version of yourself!
  • While speaking is high on your list – it’s not just about being an amazing speaker. It’s about being a leader in your industry so that you can make the biggest impact with your message.

You know you’re meant to change more lives through your message and speaking, you’re just not sure what to do next to get there. You’re looking for expert guidance and support.

You’re in the right place. My mission is to help you become the speaker you know you’re meant to be – to bring your most powerful confidence and conviction to your speaking (and all of your thought leadership).

There’s a restlessness in your heart when you think about speaking — a special kind of ache — you know you’re meant to speak and yet, that desire is often drowned out by other voices. Given your confidence and success in so many areas of your life, these voices surprise even you. They may whisper things like: 

Am I really good enough to take on a bigger stage?

Does my message really matter to enough people?

Is my story really all that interesting or useful?

And maybe even: What will people think of me when they hear this story?

Yet in spite of all of this uncertainty, you can’t imagine NOT doing this. The idea of making this kind of difference just doesn’t let go of you, no matter how much you try to ignore it.

I’m here to guide you.

My clients speak on TEDx stages, at industry conferences and at venues of every size and style. They write books and articles, create podcasts and Facebook Live videos

While being on these kinds of stages and having this kind of online presence is valuable and awesome, this is about more than being a speaker. It’s about being a recognized resource who serves others through this speaking and thought leadership.

You aren’t here to soak up the spotlight for your own glory. (Though, dang, it feels awesome to light up the stage like that!) 

But ultimately, you are here to step into a larger, more visible leadership role in service of others. This is why I provide so much more than just speaking coaching. From our work together, my clients gain more exposure, reach a larger audience, and land more clients, all while stepping into the most powerful expression of their heart’s work. 

As a result of our work together, my clients describe feeling powerfully authentic on stage – and really in all their communication. Because our commitment is to your fullest expression, you are uncompromising and unapologetic about the power of your message to make a difference.

To be clear: I am not talking about any kind of manipulative selling from the stage. I don’t believe in that kind of speaking. I am talking about your heartfelt expression of service and invitation to help facilitate transformation beyond the walls of that conference room or speaking event.

You’re ready for support and best practices for delivering your talk with gorgeous power and grace. That’s our specialty. Welcome.

One might think that with years of public speaking under my belt, a coach wouldn’t make much impact – but boy did she.

She helped me sharpen the focus of my talk, structure the flow of the story, smooth out the rough parts and really bring the talk to life.

Beyond her impacts as a speaking professional, she also was my #1 cheerleader, which helped immensely. If you have an important message and you want it to be impactful and heard, Michelle is who you should call to make it so.
