About Dr. Karine
I engaged Karine to deliver a workshop on our key topic of raising children in a bilingual environment, at our school's community event for parents and staff. Her presentation of complex concepts was crisp and clear, and very interactive. I appreciated her deep knowledge of the topic and how Karine engaged the audience by sharing her own experience and multiple stories. Her positive attitude and her smile made everyone feel welcome and comfortable.
I love Karine’s candor and flexibility in adapting her training contents into the process for a large number of team members. I appreciate how she quickly created rapport and got everyone to feel at ease and all had a great time laughing along with her feeling uplifted!!! Thank You Karine, for facilitating these wonderful sessions!
