"I’m grateful that I chose to pursue one-on-one mentorship [in Orofacial Myology] with Keisha. I found her to be attentive, thorough, efficient, and relatable. Keisha made it a point to tailor our individual sessions to my professional needs. She patiently reviewed a recorded assessment with me and helped me properly analyze, organize and document my findings. I felt more confident in my observations and diagnostic skills after our meetings. She always responded to my follow-up emails and inquiries in a timely manner with detailed responses. Keisha was very generous with her time, knowledge, and resources. She would pull from her clinical experiences to help illustrate certain concepts and provided live demonstrations when necessary. I found this to be quite helpful. Her teaching style is interactive, supportive, and transparent. It was a  pleasure to learn from her!"


"There is a reason Keisha’s Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders: A-Z  course consistently gets the best reviews. Keisha shares her thorough understanding of myofunctional disorders and treatment in an organized and functional way. Knowing her students come from a variety of backgrounds, she tackles the myo concepts from all angles and with visuals, examples, flow charts and never-ending patience.  In her mentorship role, I have come to Keisha with questions about specific clients, treatment practices, educational resources, general professional growth, networking, and even the best way to articulate my points on an evaluation report! In every instance, her advice has been spot on. Keisha has been an incredible asset to me personally as I work to advance my knowledge base and better serve my clients. I cannot recommend Keisha Nolan enough to any SLP or RDH looking to upgrade their skill set and provide better therapy to their clients!"


"Mentoring with Keisha really took me from competent to confident in my skills as an Orofacial Myologist. After our discovery call, Keisha created an individualized plan to meet my needs. She worked through challenging cases with me and also honed my skills along the way. She shared helpful forms and planning methods that she uses in her own clinic and I was able to implement them in my practice immediately. Keisha was very flexible with her schedule and her response time was quick, just as she had promised. No matter how many hours of CEUs someone takes, there is nothing better than one on one mentorship with an expert."
