My Background

If you’re an actor or executive who needs to adjust your accent to ace an audition, embody a role, or reach a business audience, I would love to work with you.

I've been helping professionals with dialect coaching and accent reduction for over 15 years.

As a Juilliard School graduate with more than 25 years of experience in theater, television, and film, I understand the challenges facing actors.  Performers I’ve worked with range from Ellen Burstyn, Gabourey Sidibe, Noomi Rapace, Stephanie Szostak, and Emily Mortimer to Tom Hardy, Gerard Butler, Robert Downey Jr., Jonathan Pryce, and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

And because of my experience for such clients as Sno:la, the California Department of Corrections, and 2B Creative, INC, I appreciate the unique needs of executives.

In this digital age, I continue to keep up with new technologies in working with clients, including online training and remote learning environments.  I’m committed to doing whatever it takes to produce the best results.

As an advocate for individuals who want to transform their communication, I want to give you tools that you can use and adapt throughout your journey.  I want to foster in you a sense of confidence in your own expertise and mastery of your abilities.

Success in my business means I help you succeed in yours.  Let's reach your goals together.
