"Fern facilitates our highly successful First Time Homebuyer workshop series. I would recommend her consulting services to any firm looking for project management or coordination." ~Joanne C., Former Executive Director, Community Development Corporation


"Fern's presentations were concise, practical, and easy to follow. Fern made tackling the dreaded cover letter and resume less intimidating and overwhelming. Not only did she present what can be dry material in an interesting and captivating way, but she did so by role-modeling her own advice of "hearing a smile" during the "elevator speech" of an interview. If I hadn't been able to see Fern, I still would have known she was smiling throughout her presentations! Thank you, Fern!" ~Elisabeth N., Student, Springfield Department of Public Health, Springfield, MA
