Like many others, Roberta didn’t grow up to be a hypnotist – hypnotism found her.  She is her own ‘walking’ testimonial to the power of the mind, having used hypnosis to successfully manage severe knee pain pre-surgery, and after a bilateral knee replacement (both knees at the a same time), used hypnosis instead of pain medication to manage her post-op and rehabilitation pain.

In addition to her many hours of hypnosis training and years of working with clients, she has successfully founded, managed and sold businesses in education, training, sustainability, and finance, and has worked across public and private sectors. Past clients include Kemps, Pentair, Sam’s Club, Starwood VO, JP Morgan Chase, the MPCA and DNR, and many government and educational institutions.

  • Her experience as a Certified Financial Planner with IDS/American Express/Ameriprise provides a ‘wealth’ of knowledge in managing the financial aspect of a business (pun intended!).
  • She created, founded, expanded and directed a Montessori School in Tampa, FL for eleven years. The skills involved in training and managing staff, educating children and parents, and understanding the growth and psychology of children, helped her develop strong, diplomatic skills in working with people on intellectual and emotional levels.
  • Her eight years as a business and sustainability consultant and corporate trainer, working with businesses, educational institutions and governments, helps her understand what it takes to have a thriving business, not just one that survives.

Roberta’s experience has taught her that it takes more than passion to have a successful business, and her goal is to help all of her trainees understand the skills necessary to help them succeed.
