What clients are saying...
“Christy was wonderful to work with throughout the process for our event. She was collaborative and flexible with us when finalizing the content of her two presentations, which were engaging and informative for our participants. We received rave reviews from individuals who listened to Christy speak – she was also named repeatedly in our evaluations when we asked which speakers attendees would like to hear from again in the future.”
Tiffany Strah, Outreach Director, The Law Practice of Dennison Keller, LLC
"Christy offered tremendous learning and insight in two different workshops she facilitated during our annual elder care symposium. I especially admired her sharing of her personal journey through the knowledge she provided in the sessions. This made the time more meaningful to the participants’ own experiences too. She exuded both expertise and relatability with us."
Merne Pratt, Eldercare Coordinator
