"Wendy Quan is a master at explaining the benefits of mindfulness and sharing practical techniques in a way that is very accessible and non-threatening to reach many different audiences.  She offers helpful tips and dispels common myths that increase engagement and ultimately help people – even those who were initially skeptical – better manage stress and live healthier lives.


And her communication, responsiveness, and professionalism makes her wonderful to work with!"

~Gabrielle Fisher, Branch Manager, Wellness and Resilience Branch, U.S. National Park Service.

From attendees of a multi-class series:

  • "Wendy was fantastic! I found her relatable, funny, soothing and a great leader.  Her engagement with the class was great.  I've never taken a class where the instructor followed up with me via email for a comment I made in the chat. Very impressive.  I would take any class Wendy is a part of!"

  • "I went from having 20 pretty major panic attacks a day to just a few. I will continue the homework from this class to try and eliminate this completely."

  • "Finding a great instructor like Wendy really makes it a legitimate class."

From superintendents:

  • "Loved the practical activities. "

  • "Would love to see this presentation either shared or provided to other workgroups. "

  • "Really liked this session and will try it with my teams."

  • "Once again, WOW!! These are excellent tools that I will work to implement and share with my team. I really liked the exercises and how she showed us how we can easily include these in our day to day and our meetings."

“The session was well received and a few folks who have taken mindfulness courses said this was one of the best they have attended. I know it resonated as a coworker was talking about awareness and other topics you had taught, weeks after the session.”

~Erin Shanahan, Ecologist, U.S. National Park Service.
