"Aleisha Agard and I have been working together for almost 4 years. I do not exaggerate when I say that she absolutely transformed my work life. On so many levels, she has made my life more organized, easier, rewarding, and fun. Her integrity, compassion, commitment, dedication, and creativity are unmatched.

When she began working with me, she had little experience in healthcare administration. I have fairly complicated work demands in academic medicine with a lot of national and international work, and Aleisha dedicated herself to understanding the various societies, hospitals, clinics, leaders, and other healthcare organizations with whom I collaborate. But most important, she has a keen understanding of how best to support me, my work, and my life. In addition to her creativity and stellar professional competence, what is most remarkable about Aleisha is her emotional intelligence. She has an amazing combination of confidence and humility. I am so fortunate to have Aleisha as a colleague and friend."

Build The Balance has worked with Erin since 2019, supporting her with brand development, website design, business consulting, and course creation.

Erin, working as a teacher and therapist, wanted to establish her own practice and begin providing coaching services as well. Aleisha started working with Erin in the beginning phases of her entrepreneurial journey, helping her bring her ideas to fruition. Together, they created a visual brand, logo, and website that spoke to who Erin is and embodied all the important characteristics of her. It was from here that Wood Sorrel Wellness was born.

"To begin with, Aleisha is a solid human being.  I have known her for several years, and she navigates this world in alignment with her values, which I think contributes to her honesty, presence, and thoughtfulness.  She has been with me from the very beginning of my business, recommended by a good friend, and she walked me through the beginning steps of website and brand development in a way that encouraged excitement rather than overwhelm.  

Fast forward to now, years later, during course creation, Aleisha was my first call.  I've recommended her to colleagues, my friends, and my family.  Truly, I'm not sure how I would have gotten to the place I am in my business today, without her organization, good humor, grace, and kind nudges."
