Education & Experience
My experience working with clients for more than 12 years has been my most important teacher. The continuing education I pursue is specifically sought to support my clients needs and pique my interests. Therefore, I prefer to enroll in classes that offer a smaller class size so that the information I'm receiving remains rich, and not diluted, as is the case with many larger classes and in-person certification programs.
