What Are People Saying About MavenTreeWorkshops?

Eileen Price, Chief Executive Officer,
In The City Camp

"Ariela is a phenomenal teacher and trainer! Her workshop on Positive Discipline was the highlight of our 2018 staff training. She customized her teaching so that it was engaging and developmentally appropriate for our high school and college-aged staff. Ariela modeled various learning strategies in order to appeal to different learners and made sure to keep in touch as an expert resource."

Hilary Merlin, Training & Comm. Specialist, Region IV Public Health Training Center

"Ariela is a fantastic facilitator. I've seen her in action multiple times as she had traveled around the Southeast as a presenter for my training center. Her workshops consistently get enthusiastic reviews from participants. She excels at translating high-level concepts into practical skills for real world practitioners. Participants' leave feeling competent rather than overwhelmed. I always enjoy working with her!"

Dr. Christina Borba, Dir. of Research,
Dept. of Psychiatry, Boston Medical Center

"Dr. Freedman is very clear, methodical, and rigorous in her approach. Her best quality is her ability to make very complex concepts easily understandable. She walked me through developing a curriculum logic model in a way that was not overwhelming for me or my grant application. I highly recommend her for anyone seeking assistance in program development, implementation, evaluation, and dissemination."

Dr. Delia Lang, Associate Professor, Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University

"Ariela has taught a Curriculum Development course to MPH students for several years.  Her teaching methods are competency-driven, extremely well organized, and impassioned. In my role as program director, I rarely observe the level of accolades for an instructor as is the case for Ariela. Most importantly, students consistently report leaving Ariela's class feeling empowered and passionate about their own trajectories as public health professionals. Ariela is a true educator!"
