About Me

Hi I’m Lucinda; coach, writer and speaker. I help people communicate effectively and successfully. This means that I can teach you how to communicate well, or do it for you.

I coach clients in speaking, leadership & communication skills. I also offer writing, editing and Plain Language services. When time allows, I write, mostly about communication and leadership. In my spare time I dance, paint, and explore the Pacific Northwest where I live with my family but sadly, no dogs.

You can find me @LucindaAtwood on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
