Dr. Edna is amazinggggggggggg! I had myself ready for the same boring professional developments we attend each year but Dr. Edna did not disappoint she kept us engaged and informed the entire training.

Dr. Chism Nicholas was able to break a complex topic like trauma down to very sizable practical tools we can use throughout the entire school year. This was one of the best presentations I ever attended!

Great job Edna! We can’t wait until you come back next year!

Our company truly valued the knowledge that Edna brought to our team, within one month we saw an increase in our productivity and revenue after implementing several of the techniques Dr. Edna recommended in her training
