JAMES | "No idea is powerful until it is shared, and I am incredibly excited about sharing and developing our venture with the Camelback community of coaches, consultants, and co-creators. Partnerships and collaborations are critical to the growth and elevation of our idea and organization, and to be accepted into the Fellowship is at the same time humbling and thrilling. I look forward to the opportunity of building with the Camelback community, and ultimately, impacting the millions of young people in need to speech therapy worldwide."
