Founder of presenting.at and course instructor
I was born in Chicago and have been living in Austria for 30 years. Therefore, I know what it’s like to feel uncomfortable in a foreign language, and to struggle to find the words to come across, at the very least, as a mildly intelligent human being.
So, I am very passionate about helping other people to feel confident and secure in the English language. Mother to three children, I began teaching English as a second language in 2001 and have been holding courses in English presentation skills at universities and colleges and coaching private business clients in Vienna since 2018.
It is very satisfying to see student’s skills improve, their confidence levels rise. And I’ve seen that it is really doesn’t take much effort for people to get great results, just the right input in the right places. Thus, the idea of “Presenting.at” was born.
