"I discovered Selina a number of years ago & became a fan of her work. However it wasn’t until meeting her during our consultation that I came to appreciate the depth and thoroughness of her expertise. She offered highly actionable suggestions with lots of encouragement tossed in, both of which I was hoping for! Selina is equal parts passion, knowledge and heart."
