About Me

Thanks for coming here to get to know me. This 1:06 video will tell you a bit about me.

Or, you can scroll down and read—and if you want to learn more, please help yourself to the welcoming excerpt from my book, here.

I am a Juilliard-trained professional orchestral musician, and an Industrial Organizational Psychology Practitioner. One of the main ways I combine these two backgrounds is in helping people to combat nervousness about public speaking and communication in the workplace.

Ten years ago, after performing inconsistently during high-stakes auditions, I went back to school to study sport psychology, physiology, and counselling. I discovered all sorts of practical things about the science of how not to be nervous. I created a program specifically to help people to prepare for their high-stakes career moments and nail them, and I used my own program to help me to succeed at my dream audition, happily landing a spot in the orchestra of the Canadian Opera Company in 2017.

Today, I divide my time between performing in the opera and coaching people in high-stakes performance and communication situations to be confident, prepared, and to deliver their best. A Master’s in Industrial Organizational Psychology (Harvard Extension School ’24), keeps me in tune with my clients’ environments.

My material brings the preparation tools and performance mindset of elite athletes and performers to professionals in all disciplines. I with with people in science, law, technology, finance, and of course, the performing arts.
