What Our Clients Say

Mistinguette brought a depth of knowledge, sensitivity yet firmness, and a compassionate spirit to a very important though difficult topic for a group to address--racial equity. I so appreciated her thought partnership, her willingness to meet us where the group was and her gentle persistence to get us to where we wanted to go.
