Satisfied Clients

“Shawn was on the faculty for several of our continuing education seminars for landscape architects and tree/plant appraisers. Her presentations were informative, entertaining and delivered at the appropriate skill level for this unique audience. In responding to our written survey, participants said that they easily understood her presentation of a difficult and new appraisal concept for trees and plants. Her humor and innovative PowerPoint presentation made learning easy and enjoyable. Ms. Wilson’s rating as a speaker exceeded all other presenters and there were numerous requests for a return engagement. “
