Dr. Nikki Gerrard, farm stress specialist discovered that “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Her resilience research was the foundation of Elaine’s award winning book Planting the Seed of Hope. Families need to communicate, celebrate and connect with community.
Elaine farms, has employees, and manages role overload, just like her clients. She has been a popular retreat speaker for many years as she is gifted as an encourager. Her common sense approach and toolbox will help your farm clients see encouragement as a leadership tool.
Your warm, friendly approach to the audience and the accompanying presentation was unique and interesting. The audience related well to your information and came away with new ways of solving problems that occur in any relationship. I would certainly recommend you to any group in need of down-to earth, common sense approaches to problem solving.

Elaine not only brought a wealth of wisdom and knowledge to the situation and issues, she provided them in a most accessible way. She gave us language with which to discuss common issues and concerns. She brought amazing energy, integrity, honesty, vulnerability and conveyed them in such a down to earth manner! We are already seeing encouraging positive results in local farm family settings.
