“Ms. Kelley presented What to Do if Your Employee Tests Positive for Covid-19 and co-presented Dental Practice Finance Management for the NIAGD via Zoom in 2020. On both occasions she was a well-received, dynamic and organized speaker, who demonstrated a clear grasp of the HR content. She provided clear and easily understood audio-visual aides, answered all questions in a professional manner and invited the attendees to contact her if any additional questions arose after the seminar. She received high praise on the Course Evaluation sheets following both CE Seminars.”
