RUBY JO WALKER, LCSW, Southwest Trauma Training

"RubyJo has such a vast store of knowledge about neurobiology and how our bodies – not just our brains – react to all of the varying experiences in life and it is clear that she loves sharing that knowledge. It’s that second part that makes her a great teacher."

– Mandi McKinley, Operations Director, Alternative Horizons Corp.
