“Chellie is a charismatic character with an obvious love for what she does. She was a joy to work with and brought some much needed energy to the room after working through some challenging disaster scenarios. The activity she presented to the employee group was both fun and stimulating for even a seasoned engineer. For an activity to be so simple in theory, it took a team of diverse individuals to figure out the answer and helped even the quietest of voices be bold. It was a great reminder to everyone that we all need each other to get the job done. We appreciate Chellie and her creative instruction!”
