“I enjoyed this class immensely. Emmy has such a wonderful ability to teach and is very knowledgeable about the subject material. She made me feel very comfortable from the instant I met her. She is a very kind, caring individual which I think is very important in teaching this type of class well. I feel she presented this VERY well. I really enjoyed the class and couldn’t imagine a better instructor/experience. This was definitely one of the most helpful classes I have taken in my 16+ years as an Occupational Therapist!” Jessica Dehn, OTR/L
