Braintree, MA Angela Nuss, real estate agent and director of special projects at Jay Nuss Realty Group, LLC, has completed all requirements to qualify for the Toastmasters District 31 Pathfinder Award.
This particular award recognizes individual members who have demonstrated a high level of achievement in the Toastmasters Pathways Learning Experience. To qualify, she completed Levels 3-5 in Motivational Strategies Path, Level 1 in Visionary Communication Path and the Pathways Mentorship Program Path in the 2021-2022 Toastmasters Program year. As part of this last program, she mentored a fellow Toastmaster and colleague at Jay Nuss Realty Group.
Formerly known as the Triple Crown Award, Nuss joins an elite class of approximately 40 Toastmasters members to successfully complete the requirements to earn this designation.
While impressive, the accomplishment is only one of many she has earned through her time with Toastmasters in District 31 in Eastern MA and RI. She earned the coveted “Distinguished Toastmaster” award in 2020, the highest award Toastmasters International bestows. The Distinguished Toastmaster Award recognizes a superior level of achievement in both communication and leadership.
She earned the Triple Crown in 2017 (now the Pathfinder Award); she has completed all of the Communication and Leadership Track awards in the Legacy Educational and Leadership program; and in 2018 she placed third in Toastmasters Area Contests for the International Speech Contest and Table Topics. She additionally earned the 2018-2019 Distinguished Area Director, and Successful Club Coach, for 2018-2019.
Toastmasters is an important part of Angela’s life, as evidenced by membership in three area clubs since joining in 2016. As someone whose professions include both commercial real estate and property and casualty insurance, she sees Toastmasters’ participation as having helped her in a number of ways. “This experience has helped me communicate better and with confidence.” She said that the training Toastmasters provides members improved specific speaking and leadership skills, which are applicable both in business and personal settings.
