                               posed by Phyllis          What brought you to Toastmasters?
                               Harmon, Editor/           A fortunate eavesdropping event—I overheard it
                               Publisher                 being discussed by the elevators at KinderCare.

                                                         I asked if I could go and the rest is History! That
                                                         was Ad Libs.

                                                         How has Toastmasters helped your career?
                                                         I think in many jobs, I have had opportunities to
                                                         speak and represent the company’s interests.  I have

                                                         also been involved in other groups where this also
                                                         was a big plus!
                                                             How has Toastmasters helped you personally?
                                                         I believe Toastmasters is helping me to find an

                                                         authentic voice.  I feel I can be more direct and
                                                         still maintain my desire to be kind. It is easier to
                                                         make friends, too.
