While my favorite job has been that of “Mom,” I truly enjoy sharing my gift of gab with others. My public speaking experience ranges from 13 years as disc jockey- reading commercials or conducting artist interviews- at California’s last free-form radio station K.O.T.R. (The Otter) on the central coast to being the pirate narrator in the local school play. You might also find me hawking wares at Renaissance Fairs, appearing in small theatre productions or emceeing concerts such as David Crosby and Arlo Guthrie. Throw in eleven years as a columnist and you’ll know why words are my best friends!
