Kind Words

Carly Peterson has a great ability to share her story in a real down-to-earth way that is easy to relate to and makes you have a desire to do better and also feel like you too can take steps to move forward on difficult situations in your own life. She faces tough topics openly and in a positive, honest, helpful way. She has a gift and I hope she will continue to share it and influence and support others.
