 "There was a lot of valuable information specific to our area that I hadn't yet seen in my research.
Amy was funny, upbeat, and engaging. Her authenticity and passion for the topic was so evident. I recommend this training to those interested in getting introductory facts about Human Trafficking and becoming educated about how they can become involved in preventing this epidemic." ~ Kalita

"I recently attended a Human Trafficking Educational seminar facilitated by Amy Rouleau.  From the moment I walked into this seminar and engaged Amy, I was moved by her authentic, welcoming spirit and inclusion.  I was present to satisfy the Michigan counselor licensing requirement but the seminar far exceeded my expectations.  There was an abundance of good, solid information that Amy skillfully presented and clipped along effortlessly.  However, there was adequate time for comments, questions and observations.  I am a seasoned counselor but found information on what to look for and how to respond quite eye-opening and very practical.  I have been in practice for over twenty years and there are methods of intervention that I was just not aware of.  I have and will continue to recommend this seminar.  Amy is a warrior in this area and I am happy to have found this resource." ~ Jane
