“I was amazed at how quickly Maria established such a nice rapport with our young firefighter recruits. Her ability to take complex information and communicate it in a format that was easy to understand, entertaining and most of all truly actionable for each of them was impressive. The “common myths” question and discussion format was perfect for engaging the audience and sharing important information without anyone feeling like they were put on the spot. The fact that so much was shared in less than an hour was a real bonus for our employees who want to learn but often have competing demands at work that keep them from attending these types of seminars.” Patty George, Arlington County HealthSmart Wellness Coordinator.
Controlling Your Appetite During the Holidays
“As expected Maria did not disappoint with her Control Your Appetite seminar for Arlington County employees. Engaging, fun and festive, she put the practical in managing your eating during the hectic and food-filled holiday season.
Breaking it down into easy to bites to swallow, she offered some great tips to try over the holidays, including at parties, for gift giving and with friends and fam
ily. The feedback was resoundingly positive from all who attended! As employees left, they were excited to try out some of her ideas. We all walked away with at least one (most of us more than one!) practical tool to put in our nutrition tool bag for use not only during the holidays, but also all year long.” Patty George, HealthSmart Wellness Coordinator Arlington County
