Kevin grew up in Alaska and then moved to New Jersey. Yes, on purpose. It was there that joined Camden County Toastmasters, club 1189 in Haddonfield, N.J., on the very fitting day of April 1, 2013. He rose to ACS at this club while also serving in several officer roles, including Club President his final full TM year in Jersey. Kevin moved to Texas in March, 2018, and joined New Braunfels Toastmasters. He considers himself most fortunate to have two great clubs supporting him along his Toastmasters journey.
Kevin originally discovered he was interested in Toastmasters when his boss told him so, but he has leveraged the lessons of conquering the fear of speaking and put them to use conquering many of the other fears that keep us from reaching our potential.
