Get To Know The Teacher
Public Speaking, Apologetics, and Backyard Theatre

It was when I was in 5th grade, that I found my love for public speaking. That’s right, I love public speaking. I know how weird that may sound, especially because to the majority of people, public speaking is the thing they are most scared of in life. But it was in front of my fellow 5th grade classmates while reciting the book, “Julius the Baby of the World” by Kevin Henkes and wearing a mouse tail and a crown, that I realized I enjoyed the thrill of speaking in front of other people. Ever since then, I have been speaking in front of audiences large and small through my involvement with Speech and Debate Team. I competed in many different events such as After Dinner Speaking, Duo Interpretation, Impromptu, and Communication Analysis. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies from Biola University in 2013.

Then after college, I got to help coach the Biola University Speech Team and loved seeing my students find their voice through public speaking. While coaching the team, I also started to share my experience and passion for public speaking with elementary students and high school students at after school programs and in homeschool classes in Orange County, California. In 2021, I decided to take all my experience, education, and passion for using the voice God has given me and create Speak Out Loud Academy to help the next generation learn how to speak out loud. Speak Out Loud Academy continues to grow each semester and gives so many homeschoolers the confidence and practice they need in order to be an effective communicator.
