“I want to thank you for the opportunties you provided me with, last week I met with a vocational rehab representative. He was able to assist me with getting voc rehab along with my appeal for disability. This type of service would not have been possible without you, thank you very much for your mentorship.”

“I am absolutely impressed with the level of professionalism you and your staff displayed this weekend. You all genuinely show that the focus is on the service member. Your class was well worth my weekend and I see it as a benefit.”

“Well the interview went REALLY well and thanks to you I was able to percieve the various body languages and motions made by the three interviewers. Your teaching of re-directing, making the interview personal, expressing ideas and opinions, and recognizing posture shifts made the difference.”
