About Gail….

On the ocean liner that is life, Gail Lewis is a timeless Cruise Director, a host who is an expert at planning and executing projects and events seamlessly.

In the community, Ms. Lewis is Area Governor of Toastmasters Area 76.  Toastmasters International is a public speaking and leadership club with chapters in over 116 countries.  Ms. Lewis encourages community members to develop their management and elocution skills, to better excel professionally and socially, through membership in Toastmasters.

Ms. Lewis is a member of the Public Relations Committee of the Queens Chapter of the National Action Network, is an Apex Award for Communications Excellence winner.  Additionally, she enjoys membership in both the Association for Women in Communications and the National Association of University Women.

Professionally, Ms. Lewis is an Associate Professor of Communications and runs her own corporate training business.  Ms. Lewis reminds her students that “The impossible is possible,” daily in class.  On a dare from her students, Ms. Lewis entered the 2011 New York East Coast Pageant, because, as her students put it, she is neither tall, nor thin nor especially pretty, so winning a beauty pageant surely would be impossible!  With great trepidation, and armed with a used ball gown she bought on eBay, Ms. Lewis entered, competed and subsequently won the title, of Ms. New York East Coast 2011, proving to her students that with hard work, determination, and a winning smile, the impossible truly IS possible!

Toastmasters District 46 Spring 2012 Table Topics Speaking Champion, Gail Lewis, authors two blogs and never passes up an opportunity to inspire others, or to watch the Twilight Zone.
