Sue Drais

PEO

“Jane Tornatore’s workshop presentation on memory and brain health was as engaging as it was informative. She’s funny and down-to-earth and makes what could be a technical subject understandable and interesting. She involves the audience and leaves them with simple, practical tips they can take back to their daily lives. Our workshop ended up getting rave reviews from the older adults who participated, thanks in a large part to Jane.“

Pam McGaffin

Moore Ink. PR and Healthy Aging Partnership

“As Programs Director for the Seattle Counselors Association (SCA), I can speak on behalf of nearly all the attendees of Dr. Tornatore’s February presentation to our organization, as I personally read each of their feedback forms. Responses from members were overwhelmingly positive and included a number of requests for future presentations by Dr. Tornatore, which SCA will undoubtedly arrange.“

Justin Pere, LMHC

“Thank you very much for the workshop presentation for our Parish Health Ministry. The presentation content/information and usefulness rated a ‘high 10’ on the workshop evaluation worksheet. The workshop attendees stated on these forms how warm and friendly you were. Other comments included appreciation of your humor and accepting manner which enabled them to feel valued in asking questions. The attendees also reported the information you provided was very valuable and several were encouraged to seek more information on stimulating the brain! We, at Saint Patrick’s, would highly recommend your program to all interested parties.”

Barbara Tomberg, MSW & Pam Martin RN

“Dr. Jane Tornatore’s succinct advice that ‘memory is all about doing things that work for you’ creates an adage to live by since it is, of course, our brains that work for us! Exercise is good brain food to keep feeding that memory source. These important concepts were expanded on and delivered with a cheerful, straightforward disposition that was very well received and clearly understood. The information presented an uncomplicated way to preserve brain health.“
