My mission statement would be this: to encourage people to thoughtful reflection on important issues of life through public speaking, dialogue facilitation and writing.
Though I'm a Briggs-Myers I-N/S-T/F-J and get nervous doing public speaking, I enjoy the opportunities I've had to do public speaking. I love the interaction with the audience as we discuss and react to questions about the topic I get to address. I delight in researching a topic and preparing it for presentation.
I've given research lectures as part of my life as a molecular biologist and taught science classes for undergraduates.
In the church setting, I've given talks and lead discussions on topics pertaining to the Christian faith and the Bible.
