“I plan a significant number of events each year and was impressed by Shawn's attention to the event we booked her for and her thorough attention to the feedback we provided.
Her workshop "Mastering the Art of Self-Care (and How to Fit It into Your Busy Life) - Exclusive tips, techniques, and strategies designed specifically for Direct Support Professionals" was highly rated by our attendees, and most who attended the workshop either wanted to spend more time with Shawn post-event or indicated that the workshop provided them with a different perspective and tips they planned to implement into their daily lives.
If you book Shawn, be assured that she will be on top of things and provide you with whatever you need to prepare for your event. Also be assured that she is a skilled presenter with a plethora of experience and is more than capable of winning over your audience.
Shawn's consistent follow up and attention to detail really made working with her a breeze, and I would heartily recommend her to anyone looking for a speaker to provide information or a workshop on health and wellness.”
