I’m Lanie, a professional persuasive person.
I like yoga, small dogs, gothic literature, doughnuts, and rollerblading.
But most of all, I really like public speaking.
Throughout four years of competition in intercollegiate speech and debate, I won one national championship, two national finalist titles, three state championships, two scholarships, and countless regional tournament awards. I have a Ph.D. in rhetoric and 8 years of experience teaching communication and coaching public speaking to college students across Ohio, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
I can put those skills to work for you RIGHT NOW.
If the very idea of public speaking makes you quake in your boots and you are struggling to turn a lifetime of ideas and experience into a cohesive oral presentation, I am available for speechwriting and delivery coaching services.
