“I’ve attended several sessions led by Sharon, and each has provided strong value. Most recent was a session that included developing a personal leadership statement. I was shocked at how effective and efficient the process was! I should have been less surprised—through her personal connection to the cause, passionate exploration of resources, and earnest delivery of all that she has learned and synthesized, Sharon truly is in the vanguard of the bridge-building form of civic activism.”
