At the end of 2018, Loni volunteered to help facilitate regular team-building sessions within the IS division for groups of up to 40. As a systems analyst and an introvert, this type of activity fell well outside of her typical purview. Determined to acquire the skills necessary to be successful as a facilitator, she took the welcome advice of another trainer and joined Toastmasters at the start of 2019. In the time since she joined, she has grown more comfortable and confident when speaking with and in front of others. In July of 2019, she was elected Spirited Speech Masters' Vice President of Public Relations. She currently maintains the chapter web site and seeks to proclaim the benefits of Toastmasters to anyone who will listen!
