TESTIMONIALS

“Jen’s presentation was amazing and so vital for our faculty to hear. It’s rare that we get a chance as educators to hear this important perspective from someone who has not only walked in the shoes of an educator but also lived in the special needs universe. The information from her presentation was practical and immediately applicable with just the right amount of humor. But, it’s her warm and engaging style that brings it all to life.” – Dr. Val Wise, NCRC Preschool Director (2014-2017)
