After her first visit, she was requested to come back by popular demand due to her depth of knowledge on working with teens and tweens and her positive message on easy interventions and strategies. She is personable, easy to work with, and leaves you with a growth mindset on how we can synergize with our teens and tweens to encourage healthy social media interactions.
Everyone who hears Ana’s message asks 'When can she come back!?'"
