I joined the Calgary PaceSetters Toastmasters Club in April 2013 at the recommendation of a colleague. Since joining Toastmasters I have served the Pace Setters as secretary, VP of education, and president. I have completed my Competent Communicator, Competent Leader, and Advanced Communicator Bronze awards.

I have represented the club in international speech and evaluation contests at the area level and have been fortunate to act as a speech contest judge at the club, area, and division levels. My favourite part of Toastmasters is seeing my fellow members learn new skills and become confident speakers and leaders.

Away from Toastmasters I work in the educational services industry and am active in both my church and Girl Guides. In these roles, I have been able to put to use the skills I have learned as a Calgary PaceSetter.
