Testimonials

"When our department was looking for a guest lecturer to kick off our Focus on Diversity Workshop this summer, Helen came highly recommended. After we had the chance to see her in action, we understood why. Helen is insightful and dedicated to her area of expertise. Her presentation and group activities made the workshop interesting and interactive. Her style, which is open and warm, was truly conducive to the atmosphere of candidness and self-reflection necessary for this topic. Thank you, Helen, for your wisdom and enthusiasm." - Dr. Natalia Cherjovsky, Kirkwood Community College. (2014)


" Helen is extremely knowledgeable about different cultures and teaches how to embrace diversity with inclusive behavior.  She encouraged and role modeled dialogue that enabled us to learn about ourselves.  She made the session interesting, fun, inspiring and engaging for all participants.  She provided a safe atmosphere for staff and department heads to express their struggles.  Participants left the session with a totally new perspective, which for me is the first step to Diversity and Inclusion.  The feedback from the session was extremely positive." - Lorena Gingerich, Human Resources, Johnson County, IA (2014)


"Helen is an expert in the area of cross-cultural communications. She has excellent presentation skills and is equally at ease with corporate audiences as she is with students.

Davies, Chair of the Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) Consortium (2013)
