Today, I interview Lisa Wentz. We discuss the origins of our fears and the way our childhood experiences shape our voice and our boldness to speak. She touches on narcissistic parenting and the lack of encouragement toward children to share their views and thoughts.

Listen to Lisa's wonderful story of resilience. She found encouragement elsewhere and respected new role models, overcoming odds to find her voice at a very young age out of pure necessity.

Lisa is a public speaking expert and author of the groundbreaking book Grace Under Pressure: A Masterclass in Public Speaking. She is known for helping her clients quickly overcome internal blocks and transform into fearless, eloquent speakers.

Considered one of the top coaches in the San Francisco Bay Area, Lisa has been featured on CNBC and in TIME Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, LA Daily Journal, Inc. among others. Lisa holds a Master's Degree in Voice and Speech Pedagogy from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama University of London.
I'm your podcast host, Dr. Doreen Downing, and I help people find their voice so they can overcome anxiety, be confident, and speak without fear.
