"Anne, I just want to thank you so much for your wonderful classes! CSUDH is very lucky to have you. I truly enjoyed your teaching style and you definitely know your topics. I wanted to brush up on my H/R and being in this industry for over 30 years, one can tell when people know their stuff and have a passion for something, and you definitely have both.

You made them fun and interesting and I am sure you're making a huge impact on many lives. I appreciated your knowledge and delivery.

Again, thanks!" -- Eva D., Regional Employee Relations Specialist
