Parents of girls
"Virginia brings remarkable depth of knowledge and professional experience to her presentation. As a mother, public health nurse and clergy spouse, I found her to be a wonderful resource." Lynne Schweppe (Mother, nurse and pastor's wife), IL
"As a PhD candidate, I appreciated the way that you integrated reliable statistics. On a personal note, upon completion of your presentation, I think that I actually had a paradigm shift. And to be honest, during the remaining time that my daughter and I spent at the summit, I felt a positive difference in our relationship, not that we have any serious problems. When I left your presentation, I felt that it confirmed for me that the connection between mother and daughter is so essential especially at this phase in both of our lives. I am grateful for your ideas." Kimberlie J. Warren (Mother and PhD candidate), IN
"I was impressed with your ability to capture the listener's attention from the very first word. Each health care issue was presented with lightning clarity and in an engaging style.
I truly enjoyed the way you offered exciting, innovative and fresh solutions to the pressing health care issues our daughters are facing today." Michele Graci (Mother and Health Educator), VT
