What people are saying about AJ's trainings and webinars
AJ is a passionate and authentic natural communicator. I attended one of her sessions on resilience and well-being. It was interactive, engaging, science-based, and had practical takeaways. She is clearly experienced in leading individuals through behavior change. Rather than focusing solely on the band-aids of workplace well-being, she got at the root of culture issues leading to burnout. It was enlightening and energizing and I left with much to consider and take action on.
Director, Staff Wellbeing @ The American Psychological Association
During 2021, AJ delivered 4 webcasts to our employees, receiving high praise for how masterfully she interacted with the audience as well as for the practical, research-backed action steps she provided during each session. Not only is AJ able to captivate her audience’s attention, but she also provides impactful, real-time exercises to help attendees enrich their application of the material. AJ is an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend AJ as a speaker for organizations seeking to address the mental and emotional well-being of their employees.

Her passion is genuine as she guides teams through the process of learning resilience skills and relays the benefits of practicing the skills on a daily basis to improve one's health and well-being.
CSC @ Joint Base Andrews
I gave AJ the task of learning our organization's culture, roadblocks and challenges in a short timeframe, and she turned around a customized training that resonated deeply with our people. AJ is a pleasure to work with and able to design a training that feels like the leaders of your organization created this from the inside.
