Nothing excites me more than helping someone find a solution to a frustrating communication problem. Whether they need to articulate more clearly or understand the nuances of our language, my clients tell me that I teach them techniques that no one has ever told them before and that make a huge difference in daily communication. It thrills me to see brilliant professionals finally able to live up to their potential because their language and pronunciation barriers are gone.

If you are concerned about your American English pronunciation, I would love to talk with you about how we can work together to improve it. Thanks to the wonderful technology of the internet, you can work with me over Skype from Europe or Asia as easily as you can meet with me in person. In fact, it’s probably even easier, since you’re in the comfort and privacy of your home or office and you have no commute to get here.

I am often asked how I got started working in accent reduction, and I think it all started with a love of languages that I’ve had since I was a child. Because of that love for communication, I pursued a degree in Speech Pathology and have spent the last 20 years helping children and adults overcome a variety of communication barriers. I’m excited to be doing what I love, which is helping others to communicate clearly as they pursue their calling in the world.
