We electrify rooms with a “Yes! And . . .” attitude.


Our comedy-infused keynotes are highly energetic, extremely engaging, and just the right amount of “let’s shake things up!”

We start by asking participants to imagine getting up on an empty stage with nothing planned and creating something wonderful right away. Then, we actually challenge everyone to raise their hand and volunteer to do that with us right then and there!

The few that volunteer are provided with incredible support from both us and the audience the entire time.  Participants quickly learn that by having a positive “Yes! And…” mindset and taking risks, they can create more opportunities and enjoy more rewards. By learning the simple rules of improv, your entire organization is inspired to achieve more, both as individuals and as a team.

Their keynote knocked it out of the park!

Finest City Improv was anything but traditional in their keynote presentation. They had our large group up on their feet utilizing the principles of improvisation right away. We will not hesitate to work with Amy and Kat again, as our team is already taking to the “Yes! And…” philosophy that was taught in the presentation. They knocked it out of the park!

Our guests were engaged and thinking creatively all day!

We were so happy to have Finest City Improv open our conference with a session on Improv. They really got the room engaged and thinking creatively and the energy that they inspired lasted all day. Improv is a great way to get the group on track before moving to business topics. What could possibly be better than a room full of happy, awake, engaged people at a conference? Thank you, Finest City Improv!

We’re all just making this stuff up!

I love to take risks. I’m the first one to raise my hand to volunteer for an opportunity – known or unknown.  I excel at presenting to large crowds and enjoy every moment of it.  I am an improviser, an entrepreneur, and a teacher.  I take risks on stage, at work, and even in my daily life as a foster parent.

In my presentation I’ll show you how the tools I use to so confidently create fun and hilarious shows on the spot are easily transferred off the stage and into real life.

These tools have changed my life completely, and I love sharing that with others. You’ll learn some of my favorite exercises and hear real-life examples of how my life has become more fulfilling and my business more successful by living the “Yes! And . . . ” philosophy.

This keynote is NOT for natural-born performers, comedians or people with “talent”. It’s for everyone, including introverts like you and me. I want to see you living the life you are meant to live and achieving the results you want to achieve, now!

Raise your hand with me!

Three Steps to a happy and more effective team!

As Director of Community and Training, I’ve been told by dozens of people that I’ve changed their life by helping them unlock a world of possibilities! It’s all about taking action and strong teamwork.

I am a highly energetic and motivational speaker that loves working with teams. In my presentation I share three incredibly powerful tools proven to build more trust, engagement, and collaboration with any team. Everyone in the audience will experience how to listen, contribute, and play like an improviser to create more possibilities and joy.

Improv has transformed my life and allowed me to build a community that creates new possibilities every single day for hundreds of people. It can do the same for you.
