1. Tell us about your practice, including the location (city & state) and the services you provide.
Triangle Speech Services is located in Durham, North Carolina in a small, dedicated office space in my town home. I specialize exclusively in foreign accent and regional dialect modification. I founded Triangle Speech Services in Durham, NC in 2005 upon retirement from a 38-year career as a clinical and school-based speech-language pathologist. I was 66, and had no idea about the nuts and bolts of starting a business but I learned a lot from other business women who presented at the Chapel Hill Chamber of Commerce Women’s Round Table and the Women Business Owner’s Network (WBON) of Cary, NC.
2. What do you find most rewarding about being a corporate speech trainer?
What is most rewarding about being a corporate speech trainer is that I AM MY OWN BOSS and I can design and run a business to accommodate the interests and activities of the rest of my life.
