"Your message truly resonated with me as I had a similar experience as your husband did, about 3 years ago. I was very grateful and wrote letters and expressed my gratitude so many times to so many people. I know that helped me stay strong in spirit. I do think your message was very powerful. Thank you again for your energy and enthusiasm and valuable message."
Patricia Sheasby, Education Assistant
"Thank you so so much for speaking at the conference yesterday morning! The team l.o.v.e.d. your message and you! I think your presentation and approach came at a time when staff needed to hear someone talk about why the HERO traits matter in one’s personal life, and the long-range impact of embracing ways to improve one’s happiness. One staff commented that she loved the way you spoke about the mindfulness actions and happiness traits in a non-threatening way. In our predominantly female workplace, I also heard people express delight in hearing from a woman’s perspective and voice"
