As requested, I am beginning to share information from sessions, workshops, training seminars and talks I have given. These are posted primarily for those who attended who asked for electronic versions. However, I am sure there are tidbits that can be useful even if you were not there.
Look for more to be added as time goes by... Enjoy!
(Following the links to session materials, you can find a brief biographical sketch as may be needed should you invite her to speak at an event.)
