Internalize, Internalize, Internalize. Nancy made me understand the importance of the above words. She taught me that anyone can write a speech but the presentation is the most important.  In order to make that presentation effective you must internalize and truly believe your words.  This helped me so much when preparing my ‘Mother of the Bride’ speech this last November.  She added to my self-confidence; I do not think I could have done it without her.

Thank you Nancy,
Linda Rothberger
