Kim Hemsley


Kim helps people be authentic on stage.

(Kim is currently on sabbatical. Please book with Maryrose.)

Hailing from across the pond, Kim trained at a top London Drama School before working as a professional actress for 10 years in plays and musicals, also as a voiceover artist, and filming a course she created for the camera. Kim specializes in presence and voice, bringing out your individuality and personality in presentations.

Kim dives deeply into your ‘why’, working strategically on the content and flow, and how to connect meaningfully with your audience. Embedded in all of Kim’s work is crafted practice and feedback, the only way to really grow in presentation skills!

Kim lives with her husband and three daughters in the DC area where she leads the communications training program at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, working with economists and scholars to prepare them for conferences, TV, Zoom presentations, radio, podcasts, and testimonies on Capitol Hill.

Kim comes from a musical family (her father arranged for the Beatles!) and is a singer and musician. She absolutely loves Math and has a passion for Killer Sudoku – the really tough ones!

Maryrose Milkovich Ewing


Maryrose helps people make progress.

Maryrose’s coaching focuses on building clarity and confidence in what you have to say. And the ability to connect it to any audience. 

She works with people to help them understand their current skill level and make a plan to keep growing. Whether a first-timer or an experienced speaker, anyone can learn, practice, and iterate to improve.

Maryrose volunteers with Women Outside, a Colorado-based group dedicated to teaching and inspiring women to enjoy the great outdoors. She is the Vice President of Durango Early Bird Toastmasters where she iterates on her own public speaking skills and helps others do the same. Maryrose earned her MBA at George Mason University.

In the summer, find Maryrose on the river, trails, or rocks. In the winter, find her skiing the cold smoke at Purgatory Resort. She lives in Durango, Colorado with Bob, Ollie, and Otis.
