    What Nursing Meeting Planners Say About Aila

    "Aila recently developed and narrated a DVD to educate our legislators on the nurse’s role in health reform and rallied almost 400 nurses as the emcee of our 2009 Nurse Unity Day at the WV Capitol. Her message inspires nurses to reconnect with their passion and expand their roles to keep pace with and capitalize on health reform trends. She is an excellent choice for any nursing educational venue. It is my pleasure to highly recommend this energetic and talented speaker."
    Steve McElroy, Executive Director, West Virginia Nurses Association

    “Aila made it easy for me as a conference planner. The biggest benefit is that what she brings to the table is different. Several of the comments were this presenter was wonderful, it wasn’t the same old tired ideas presented in the same old tired ways. I was surprised at how many of the evaluations said how effective what Aila presented was for them, even just in that moment that they tried them there in the conference setting. I would very much recommend Aila for conferences, especially for health care professionals and the stress-busting and consider booking her again for our Palliative Care Conference.”
    Lisa McMillion, Conference Planner

    “Aila is a wealth of knowledge and a delightful presenter! I highly recommend her programs.”
    Angy Nixon, CNM, American College of Nurse-Midwives
