CHRISSY ROTH FRANCIS
Public speaking isn’t just about engaging an audience. To Chrissy, it’s about transforming it. As a coach at Own The Room, Chrissy helps professionals become dynamic communicators so they can influence their audience in a transformative way.
No matter where life has taken Chrissy, she’s always been an educator at heart. With a Doctorate in Educational Leadership, her passion is teaching others to become better communicators and leaders. In addition to coaching, Chrissy leads new student services and orientation programs at UC Berkeley and the University of Southern California. She has trained students in public speaking, customer service, diversity education, and group facilitation. She also piloted a student onboarding program in Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong, where she learned what it truly means to be a global citizen.
When she’s not training and developing leaders, Chrissy is usually cheering on her hometown San Francisco Giants, spending time with her two-year-old daughter, or traveling.
