...when I was asked to be a part of this engagement, the first thing I did was reach out to Dr. Lisa. I knew that that was her world, it's what she does, speaking and teaching... And I wanted to do a great job. So, I reached out to her, she helped me have a super solid foundation. We were able to build my talk off of real stories, real parts of my world, my life, my story... and cater it to the talk topic.

and reinvigorated my spirit! Having just completed my first manuscript I was discouraged to learn that the publishing process ahead of me was likely going to be more than a year and delay other areas of my professional career. Not only did Lisa provide me with a WEALTH of technical and professional information specific to publishing and writing, her sage advice and direct encouragement regarding my decision-making abilities doubled my self-confidence and trust in my professional abilities as well. It was invaluable! Further, after immediately taking to action her direction I contacted a publisher who is now interested in my work and will be meeting with me next week to discuss my manuscript! Thank you, Lisa, for helping me to “take that next step” in my professional journey! You are truly gifted at coaching!

Dr. Lisa Summerour has a sensitivity that allows her to go right to the heart of the conversation. When our sessions ended, she had helped me embrace perspectives that had been overlooked and turned ideas into action steps.

Dr. Summerour kindly addressed my senior class of 2015 with an ambitious, sincere and honest message that left everyone encouraged to do their best. Lisa’s words and advice to the young people about the power of education and the doors of opportunity it will open for them was powerful. She spoke to the students with conviction and compassion and could easily relate to what they would face in a few hours—adulthood! The feedback from staff, students, and parents was exemplary. They wanted more of Dr. Lisa Summerour.
