“Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has a growing need to engage political and scientific decision makers, as well as other key stakeholders. We hired Jan as part of an effort to help staff confidently and effectively communicate these complex research. Jan spent considerable time with senior Laboratory leadership and did a tremendous job improving the communication and presentation skills of our staff. She is highly skilled and we recommend her to others facing similar issues as ours.”

James Soeder,

“Jan has a special ability to understand and correctly identify the ’communications issue’ and offer solutions. The most important skill was how to breathe correctly and use my voice effectively. I loved the ’impostor complex’ discussion and am hoping I can learn from it. I also realized how much speaking effectively is a mental skill.”
