Mary, you are a wonder! Not only have you jam-packed our workshop hours with fascinating and vitally important information on brain research, you have done much more: modeled everything you are teaching; used all modalities; given us very practical and usable ideas we can begin using immediately; been responsive and respectful by immediately dealing with all questions posed; allowed us to connect and know you through your presentation, and yes, even entertained us.
