“We brought Erica in to help us master the art of storytelling and to learn how to share the meaning of these places even more effectively. When we worked with Erica before, it was one of the most meaningful experiences of my career. I was thrilled by seeing the growth in rangers and the inspiration they gleaned.”
— Chief of Interpretation, National Mall and Memorial Parks, Washington, DC

As a marine, I don’t always feel comfortable expressing philosophical or emotional feeling with strangers. However, these activities encouraged just that and the universally positive responses encouraged me further. I was able to connect with a deeper side of myself."  


" I feel that the level of programs this year was just outstanding. Even our more "science based" interpreters brought in more of the emotional, reflective techniques.  We’ll continue using what we learned. Her techniques were especially effective for creating the baseline of connection that leads to meaningful dialogue.”
