As the current Founder’s District PR Manager, Simone is passionate about promoting the transformative powers of Toastmasters to the Orange County community. Through the VPPR learning labs, she aims to support our clubs in their promotional activities to attract more guests and new members. She is also proud to be a Toastmasters brand ambassador!
Simone Nash joined Toastmasters in April 2011 during the intermission of the very first meeting she attended. Her motive for joining Toastmasters was to become a more engaging speaker and enjoy public speaking rather than see it as ‘work.’ Over the years, Simone has indeed undergone a transformation in not only her communication style but also her leadership style, and her favorite thing now is delivering speeches and mentoring/coaching others.
Simone has completed 4 DTMs so far, 2 traditional system DTMs and 2 Pathways DTMs. Only the first DTM and the first Pathways DTM were planned achievements. The others were achieved through her passion for speeches, serving in various leadership roles, and working with others in team projects.
In 2022-2023, Simone served as VPE of Smedley Chapter One Advanced and as a member of the Founder’s District PR team. She was awarded the Spirit of Excellence award from Founder’s District in February 2023. In 2023-2024, Simone is serving as VPE of Pastime Pursuits and as of November 2023, she is also a club coach for Smedley Chapter One.
Serving in leadership roles has taught her a lot about herself and this in turn has contributed to the ongoing transformation that continues to this day. With her 10th & 11th paths almost complete, she looks forward to continuing her Pathways learning experience into the new year of 2024!
