"Dr.Holden gives a twist to the term 'Applied Learning'. As a motivational speakers invites the Spirit and touches the soul...all towards a journey of hope and achievement. Her life story and lessons learned over the years inspired the audience to believe in themselves and to never give up. I recommend her as a speaker for those who are in a transitional period of life, and paralyzed by doubt and fear."
