Here’s what she has to say about the online courses she created:

"During the past 20 years of practice, the most common question I receive is about the best color for something important in a person's business or life in general. People need help choosing the most effective color for a logo for their business, or a product, a website, a room in their home or office, a building, and countless other things. 

I've created these courses to give you the same knowledge and tools that I’ve developed for using color successfully on your own. In essence, I'm sharing exactly how I work with every aspect of color."
