Jenny added a most-appreciated bright spot to our Hospice team retreat. She reminded us all of the importance to have a dose of laughter every day, and we were ho-ho-ha-ha-ha-ing when we saw each other the next day!! Her life stories, and ability to show how to laugh even in the midst of troubles was invaluable to us personally and for our professional lives. Thank you, Jenny for lifting us up!

Thank you so much for your presentation "It's Laughter We're After!" at our annual Women's tea. A good share of the women will never be the same again. That much fun and laughter improved health of both body and spirit. No doubt, when they shared what they had heard and learned, it improved the health of those they had contact with as well. Your visit increased the smiling in Hillsboro, Oregon. What a wonderful legacy.

Our Presidents' Assistants group was wowed by your presentation, Jenny. You are so inspiring and entertaining and the women are still talking about you the next day at the meetings! Personally, I have not laughed so hard in a long time and it felt wonderful. The tips on motivating laughter in the workplace motivated us all. Thank you!
