How do you feel about speaking in public?

It's an honor to speak to people to inspire them with stories of victory and defeat, lessons learned and ideas worth spreading. Tell your life-changing story and change a life!

What kind of speaking opportunities do you currently have?

I'm a frequent presenter in the D.C. metro area to business groups, non-profits, youth and job seekers, providing information and inspiration on being "unforgettable" and confident when communicating.

How does presenting fit in to your professional and personal life?

Stories are the life-blood of conversation and communication, whether speaking to one person in the line at the grocery store or in front of hundreds of people.

What's the best or worst part of public speaking?

The best part is seeing people connect and respond to my message. The worst part is seeing presenters who could be truly inspirational be just mediocre and all the people who say, "Great presentation" but don't really mean it.

If you had a way to improve your public speaking in a fun, relaxed atmosphere that includes wine, what story would you tell about your life experience that could change the world?

That's why I created the Speaker Salon. It's affordable, accessible group coaching that's a perfect blend of a Toastmasters Meeting, a Tupperware Party and a Wine-Tasting!


Trained as an actress, singer, dancer, I've been performing my whole life. For the last 10 years, I've been helping people of all ages, from all walks of life bring their story to life to build their business and inspire others!

What ritzya is saying about this Meetup Group

i'm the host and i was blown away by the quality of the people who showed up both physically and "meta-physically". everyone was truly present and had so much to contribute to the benefit of the whole group. a community was born last nite. a community of "life-minded" individuals who have a life-changing story they want to share to bring others to life. inspirational. educational. fun.
