"I cannot even begin to tell you how much I loved the time (in coaching) we spent with you!!! I am so blown away by all the information you shared. You are such an amazing educator!!! I could not stop thinking about everything - the how, the why, the root cause... I am so ready to learn more. You cannot ignore all that is out there. I cannot just keep doing the same thing now I know. It is time for me to get uncomfortable and dive deeper. You changed me yesterday. Thank you."
