Lisa's continuing Education


    This is a great option if you have a specific issue you would like help with,             

       can’t make a class schedule work or just prefer one-on-one coaching. 


Continuing education is necessary to keep a trainer’s skills, techniques and understanding at its best. It will also guarantee you get the benefits of the latest studies and new developments. Lisa has attended hundreds of hours of seminars, workshops and conferences with leading trainers, behavioralists and scientists from around the world. She has also Graduated With Distinction from Karen Pryor Academy.
