Amy Brenna held a short training session on work/life efficiency for my staff. Her advice, analysis and techniques were a great way to bring another level of organization to the often fast-paced, hectic world of local government. We were particularly impressed by her ability to take these lessons and show how we can apply them directly to experiences that members of my staff have all the time. She likes to say that 15 minutes of planning saves an hour of work – even just a brief session with Amy gave my office the tools we need to do our jobs better and faster.

Now a Wagner year wiser and calmer, I signed up and attended the seminar offered by NYU called Strategies for Juggling School, Work, and Personal Time conducted by Amy Brenna. I am very thankful that this seminar was made available to me and my fellow students. It was quite reaffirming to know that there are methods to the madness of working and studying and it has given me even more confidence to tackle another year. Ms. Brenna was excellent and her professional execution and suggestions will extend not only to school, but also to my work. It validated that a science does exists in choosing to go back to school while working and staying sane! Above all, it reminded me that life does not have to go on hiatus in the process (well those bad TV shows have to be shelved, but I can live with that).
