The toolbox of simple workday stress-resiliency solutions she gave to our employees is excellent, and months later, employees can continue to utilize her suggestions.

I realized the impact that Dr. Race's presentation would have on our staff when a colleague turned to me and whispered: "This is life-changing." Kristen's ability to share the effects of stress on our brains, our work, our happiness and our relationships, especially in today's fast-paced world, is invaluable.
