Dana is incredibly knowledgeable, flexible, and outgoing, so working with her was always a joyful experience. She accommodated our needs and always went above and beyond. Dana's influence has helped guide a major priority area in our school division's strategic plan as well as supporting schools in creating outcomes with attainable targets. She inspired staff with ideas for making schools a better place to teach and learn. She shared her expertise in ways that made it practical for staff to understand, and flexible to add to the direction the school division was heading.
Dana worked with not only staff, but also students to consider leadership through a positive psychology lens, which students indicated was very motivating for them. We would highly recommend any school division to bring Dana in, and we would gladly work with her again.

Dana's impact caused a ripple effect from staff to students. The sessions were enlightening for staff in all aspects of wellbeing ... this led to conversations and new connections amongst colleagues which then in turn, allowed staff to support students. In surprising places, Dana's teaching would appear in our school. This could be in a staff room chat, meetings where teachers discussed how they would implement some of the strategies they learned from Dana in their classrooms, to students expressing their gratitude for the ways their teachers were able to support them when they were finding online learning difficult. We even had a couple of students create a wellbeing support group within our school because of the way they felt after attending a session led by a teacher who led a session on Dana's topics.
Former Superintendent + Director of Leadership Learning, Wellness
Dana and her work have had very positive impacts within various departments in our organization and with me personally. Dana's in-depth knowledge, relevancy, and current background have played an important role in professional learning. She is perceived as caring, knowledgeable, and energetic.
She is also very creative, timely, and meticulous, which is complemented by a tremendous work ethic. She has worked with us to raise the level awareness of the broad and deep nature of wellness. She is also directly working with us to implement helpful and practical positive psychology topics related to personal and workplace wellbeing that are backed by science and research.
Wellbeing is in service of learning, growth, human development, and just MORE FUN and ENJOYMENT!
Seriously though, research suggests that investing in wellbeing can turbo-charge learning outcomes, resilience outcomes, and overall school environments. It won't fix all of the woes in this system, but it's within our immediate control and can create ripple effect benefits.
