Trainer Statement

My goal as an MI Trainer is to spread this remarkable "way of being" to people far and wide, so they can live empowered lives and empower others to do the same.  I am a passionate, down to earth empath with a long history of working with justice involved staffers and clientele.  I have street credibility in this arena and can speak the language.  I don't believe in doing training that isn't fun.  I aim to create a memorable experience tied to practical skills that the audience won't soon forget and can easily implement in their daily work.
