". . .she was an invaluable resource for me when I was putting together the Spread the Word campaign event. She not only helped me get in touch with people that I knew I needed to coordinate with, but also she anticipated certain needs and put me in touch with people to meet those needs . . . She recognizes as a speaker that it is important to have movement in the room, especially about halfway through the class so she provides a great movement exercise which also incorporates a teaching methodology. . ."
