Have you ever had a moment where you've managed too many events all at one time and it begins to stress you and your team out? Well it's time to take a deep breath, relax, and Laugh Out Loud!!

Who knew 10 minutes of hearty laughter produces the same health benefits as five minutes on a treadmill? Join us for some fun in this interactive and motivating session with our guest speaker, Dawn Thurmond, as we learn the techniques that can help improve your health, and learn how to lessen stress on your teams.

Dawn Thurmond is a natural motivator and has been a Certified Laughter Coach for nearly 10 years. As a trainer, Dawn brings her experience as a non-profit leader in workforce development, to inspire team members at all levels to bring a mission to life. With her energetic and funny wit, she believes laughter is the power of finding joy in a stressful world. So lets tickle your stress away, before it tackles you!
