Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM)
Carmine (pronounced Car-meen) Coco De Young grew up in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. As a former educator she enjoys presenting at schools across the United States. Her work and research have led her on many an adventure. Once described as having a “compass in her blood,” Ms. De Young enjoys the open road. However, that same compass always points her back to the place she calls home – Ridgefield, Connecticut where she resides with her husband and a dog named Gabby.
As a member of Toastmasters International, Carmine is trained in and enjoys public speaking. In addition to inspiring young readers in workshop bookings, she enjoys serving as keynote speaker, seminar presenter, and storyteller covering a wide range of topics and events for all ages.
