Dr. James-Etta was a presenter at the Louisville Urban League's Super Saturday Soft Skills Series. This workshop was a much needed session because it opened my mind to a new awareness of thinking. It is also a valuable tool to use in every area of my life. I would recommend her as a speaker and/or educator.
