OTHER PEOPLE & THINGS THAT I THINK ARE JUST AWESOME
Amanda Brown, Wedding Celebrant - MA, but "has love; will travel" - Her "Unique, joy-filled weddings" is only partly right. She's just plain awesome: creative, clever, professional and all heart (not in that woo-woo way, either). Btw, she books up fast. Craig & I were lucky to have had her officiating our Atomic 50s Luau!
Shari Berkowitz of The Vertical Workshop - Shari is one seriously gifted teacher of Pilates teachers, but even novices can learn a ton about the method in her well-informed, articulate blog. She brings true professionalism to the Pilates industry. You'll find her in NYC...or all over the world teaching workshops.
Form Pilates - Boutique Pilates Studio in Union Square (NYC) run by the fabulous Lindsay Lopez. The space is gorgeous; and Lindsay is a dynamic and pedigreed teacher.
Val Nelson - Introverts unite! Business & Career Coach in Northampton, MA who will help you make your mark & make a living. She knows all the secrets as an ex-wallflower.
Women's Voices Worldwide - Dr. Laura Greenfield is the Executive Director of this non-profit organization that helps empower women by giving them a voice (literally, oral presentation instruction). The organization provides mentorship to women and girls through private and group workshops.
