My Time Is Now!
and so IS YOURS!
I've gone through a major transformation this past year - losing weight that in my mind, kept me from speaking in front of a group, and adopting a healthy and fit lifestyle. I got up at 3:30 one morning feeling compelled to write Transformation, detailing my mental, physical, and spiritual journey that has changed my entire life. I finally feel free to move forward with making my dreams a reality, and I feel passionate about helping other women to leave fear and excuses behind, so they too can find their passion and purspose for living a fulfilled life.
I have known ever since I joined Toastmasters in my thirties that I wanted to be a professional speaker. I loved competing in the International Speech Contest and won twice for the state of Oregon during my eight years with the organization. I also did about sixty outside speeches on various topics on communication skills.
I have over twenty years experience as a top sales consultant and have developed strategies to consistently deliver over the top results that I have compiled into Fired Up to Dial. It, too, is about having a positive mindset to achieve outstanding results.
I grew up in Spring Valley, Washington, DC but have lived on both the East and West coasts. I had the opportunity to attend Holton-Arms School from kindergarten through twelfth grade, Connecticut College, UCLA, and Chico State where I got my B.A. in English. I have four beautiful grandchildren, a sweet cat, and spend most of my time staying fit with cardio kickboxing and working out at the gym. I love music, playing the piano and dancing and am commited to staying active and helping others achieve their goals.
I want to give a special thanks to my daughter, Ann Zamudio, who has always believed in me and helped me every step of the way to make my dream a reality. My dear friend, Marissa Zeveigenhaft, who has been a sounding board and had a vision of where my business would take me even before I did. I owe my heartfelt gratitude to Michael A. Jones, my personal trainer, close friend, and cardio kickboxing instructor who has challenged, motivated, and inspired me to transform my life physically, mentally, and spiritually. This incredible journey has set me free to finally fulfill my dream of becoming a professional speaker.
I am truly blessed and cannot wait to start reaching out to others to help them start their journey as well.
