“I’ve had the pleasure of sitting through one of Dr. Holmes’ presentations in early 2019, and was thoroughly impressed with the energy and experience she brought into the room. She gracefully and tactfully walked the audience through the topic at hand, being careful to invite them into her presentation in efforts of keeping them engaged. Her delivery was quite impactful and I’m pretty certain that I was only one out of many, who left feeling empowered and hopeful. It was a presentation I’d never forget!”
