COVID-19 UPDATE: I am once again able to offer in-person classes at your place of business! I am also continuing to offer classes by Zoom for businesses who need to stay distanced, and for businesses that are located out of town.
For in-person classes I will be following the state and CDC protocols regarding COVID-19, including six foot distancing.
