"One of the best CE classes I have ever taken- often I feel like I don't take away much from them or the teacher is so arrogant that its just a class boosting their ego- YOU KNOW how this industry can be! Your presentation & class involvement was excellent and I really enjoyed the exercises and equipment. You are obviously very gifted and knowledgeable but most importantly passionate about the subject. Thanks for such a great class!" - Liz Finch
