"I am a parent of an 8-year-old girl and was deeply impacted by your presentation here on the Big Island a few weeks ago.  Thank you for your powerful message."  

"Thank you, again, for the presentation that you made!  We've always conversed with our son about life's issues, but this opened a door onto teenage stressors we hadn't considered."  

"Justine shared relevant research on the topic of social media and facilitated wonderful conversations with skill, expertise and, most importantly, compassion.  I do hope she continues to find ways to reach out to parents, schools and communities to bring meaningful conversations about these very important topics to as many of these groups as possible."
