I have had the pleasure of working with Michelle Anne for over 5 years and I can say without hesitation that she is one of the most energetic and hardworking professionals I have ever worked with. Michelle is an incredible facilitator, educator and coach in the area of Neuroscience, Leadership and Mindfulness. She has excellent communication skills and has the ability to engage and effect change in her students at all levels. Michelle is always willing to offer sessions based on the current trends and requests of employees attending her classes. She has gone above and beyond to ensure that her classes are engaging and appropriate to the topics relevant to today’s issues.  

The Brain Gym was her creation, in response to the needs of individuals and employees, and as such I have seen long-lasting transformations that include improved productivity, resilience, and collaboration in so many of our employees. The Brain Gym provides recordings of Michelle’s live presentations, brain hacks, and scientifically validated worksheets. The replays allow the opportunity for those that cannot attend Michelle’s “Live” sessions to view them at a more convenient time. The Brain Gym has been so popular for over 5 years running, that leadership schedule meetings around her presentations, because people want to listen to her program.

I would highly recommend Michelle Anne for facilitating any and all topics related to Professional Development, Wellness and Neuroscience. She is a talented and dedicated professional that has touched many lives in our organization.  Thank you for what you do Michelle.
