What is your favorite Toastmasters experience?"When I became a Toastmaster I had difficulty in assimilating into the program. I recognized that I needed a mentor and my club had no mentorship program. We were all basically new members feeling our ways around. I realized that what the club needed to be a success was a mentorship program. I took on a personal project and wrote the clubs own mentorship manual. I looked at mentoring as semi-structured guidance whereby one person shares their knowledge, skills and experience to assist others."
Length of time as a Toastmaster: More than five years, less than 10 years
Highest education awards earned: Distinguished Toastmaster
