A testimonial from the event planner:
“Thank you for sharing your experiences and your humor with us. The entire room roared with laughter at some of your antics. You are such an enjoyable speaker. I do not believe I have ever seen our crowd give a standing ovation to anyone, yet at the end of your presentation, all were on their feet! You are an inspirational to all who work in behavioral health. It reminds us why we come to work each day. It means a lot.”
