Hi there.

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 9 years of experience teaching communication and coaching public speaking to college students across Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York.

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. Read on to learn more about my work as a consultant or see how my experience in rhetoric translates into my academic writing.

Let’s get started!
