Staff Member, College of St. Scholastica

"This is the most comprehensive workshop I have ever attended. Having you (Phyllis) and julius, we had the cream-of-the-crop. Your ability to introduce new information while weaving in and out of your personal stories with sincerity and wit was well worth our time. I questioned rather spending an entire day in a diversity workshop would be worth my time, I was not disappointed."

High School Principal

“Just want to tell you how much I appreciate your facilitation this week. I've been through a lot of seminars in my professional and personal life, and this was among the most meaningful. Your ability to let go and trust the process, your intentionality in planning and organizing, and your willingness to simply be yourself were great gifts to me."
