I thoroughly enjoyed Athena’s presentations. In fact, her delivery was so engaging that I lost all track of time. The topic was timely, and she presented the material in a way that everyone could understand. She offered valuable information and a personal story of hope. She is a captivating speaker who talks about difficult material with both sensitivity and humor.  She exceeded my expectations. I hope to have her return and assist in future events. Thank you for a very valuable experience.
