What professionals said in class evaluations

There was a real range of backgrounds and experience in that group, and I appreciate how you tried to tailor it to be meaningful to the whole group.

[We were] dumbfounded by the number of ways we are not equipped to serve those who enter our doors. Thank you for opening our eyes, and preparing us to learn more, understand better, and serve more thoroughly in our community.  

Thank you was a very eye opening class, both personally and professionally! 


Good pace, interesting 

examples helped in learning. 


I enjoyed your class and 

your style! Thank you! 


Thank you for covering this topic thoroughly.


I enjoyed your class.  I plan to attend more of your trainings in the future!

The half day... works great for me as it's so hard to get time off, & my attention span dwindles in day long trainings.


Karin is excellent, superb, fantastic!


Thank you -- absolutely wonderful, educational, and clearly organized and presented training.
