Have you ever been caught off guard when asked to explain who you are or what’s important to you? That’s a conundrum our guest Julie Gauderman, MS, DNAP, APRN, CNRA is here to help you navigate. Together with co-host Tracy Castleman, DNP, CRNA, APN-A, FAANA, we dive into the concept of an elevator speech, how to craft it, and why it’s an effective way to confidently represent your profession and control your narrative.

Julie has served as a federal political director for her state since graduation, a role that allows her to connect state leaders and other CRNAs and students with their federal representatives, and was recognized with the Federal Political Director of the Year award from the AANA in 2021.

She talked about this elevator speech topic at the Mid-Year Assembly and we wanted to hear more about it from her. Join us to learn more about how to put your elevator speech together so that you can control your message with a state or federal representative when given the opportunity. This is also something you can use at the bedside and with patients you meet every day.

I started listening to this podcast religiously early on in my CRNA journey, a year before applying to CRNA school. The content in this podcast was one of my most helpful resources for getting into my first choice school, Wake Forest! It has also been a huge motivator for getting involved with the AANA now and throughout my career. I highly recommend this podcast to every prospective CRNA I meet.
