“Come to the edge,” he said.

“We can’t, we’re afraid,” they responded.

“Come to the edge,” he said.

“We can’t, we’ll fall!” they responded.

“Come to the edge,” he said.

And so they came.

He pushed them.

And they flew.”

About Me

I am a teacher at heart. Teaching and coaching are my passion.

My career experience encompasses the worlds of education and business. From leading two centers in test preparation, college selection, and career development, to consulting in marketing, sales, and entrepreneurship in multiple industries, I have been a student of the marketplace, always.

Like a sponge, I absorb all that surrounds me so I can use my acquired knowledge to teach, coach, and help others. I have encouraged the teams I have led and those I have collaborated with to do the same. I love to learn and surround myself with people who also love to learn.

My foundation is a classical education from Vassar College. I have earned a Bachelor’s Degree in English and a Provisional Teaching Certification to Teach English in Secondary School Education. Also, while in college, I had the opportunity to study at Oxford University and intern in the British Primary Schools. Unfortunately, no teaching jobs were available upon graduation, so with college loans to pay, I entered the business world.

Throughout my career in both education and business, I have turned everything I have done into a teaching or coaching opportunity. Also, my eye for improving efficiency is incorporated into my Simply Writing Well Process. Yes, expressing your ideas can be accomplished easily, effectively, and efficiently!

My Mission

Offering my organizational approach to idea creation, development, and expression is a dream come true. I have used the 3 Organizational Keys to Writing Success throughout my education and business career to express my or my clients’ ideas and taught my peers to do the same. In addition, I am glad to further support my process and its efficiency with how the brain’s unique structure contributes to the overall idea creation, development, and expression. So, I must ask.

Since we have often been told our creative thoughts and ideas originate within the right or creative side of the brain, and at the same time, we attempt to capture those thoughts and ideas while using language and its rules, which exist within the brain’s left or the analytical side, then why are we truly surprised when our split focus and constant movement between the two hemispheres do not produce the best written or verbal communication and cause a lengthy editing process? Can we really do two things at once and do them well?

With the Simply Writing Well Process, I will show you how to respect, independently work within and balance each hemisphere’s contribution while working within your hectic schedule. By focusing and then balancing idea creation, development and expression together and with your audience in mind, your final communication will be expressed fully and easily understood. Consequently, like me, you will see your ideas efficiently captured and expressed while easily meeting your deadline.

Since my mission is to have ideas become a reality for all who want to create, efficiently express, and respectfully deliver their ideas to their audience, I would like to significantly reduce poorly developed ideas, where the expression is empty, flounders aimlessly, or is repetitively expressed with no real purpose. Also, I want to reduce the time spent editing and having the listener or reader feel cheated and frustrated for spending their time listening or reading a communication. In its place, I would like to see more fully developed ideas inspire, persuade, instruct, or thoroughly entertain an audience. I want the intention of the communication and its purpose to be understood and for an audience to feel their time is well spent. Respect and consideration are essential for communication to be heard, read, and understood. So, what are our next steps?
