I joined Toastmasters to improve my communication skills and discovered that Toastmasters also builds leaders! I love that you get to hear different perspectives and fantastic stories from a diverse group of people while personally growing and having fun.

I have been a Toastmaster Member since June 2018 and have previously served in the role of Vice President of Membership in the Speaking of Banking Club with Fifth Third Bank. In the 2020-2021 TM Year I was provided with the opportunity to serve as Area 02 Director and I was also provided the opportunity to serve as Club Coach for The Law of Attraction Toastmasters Club. I have also volunteered as a Coordinator in the Youth Leadership Program to interns through the Fifth Third Bank partnership with Project SEARCH. I am currently serving as the Area 17 Director for the 2021-2022 Toastmaster Year; I am also serving as Co-Chair for the District 62 2022 Conference. I was also the District 62 Hall of Fame Spirit of Success award recipient for the 2020-2021 TM Year. The reason why I made the decision to join the West Michigan Advanced Club is because I wanted to continue to grow and develop, not only as a public speaker and a presenter, but also as a leader both personally and professionally. I am truly looking forward to my time here and I am truly looking forward to my future as a Toastmaster.
