Through the sharing of Contagious Optimism co- author’s stories, group members’ personal stories of resilience through challenging times, and providing simple, yet impactful exercises based in Positive Psychology, Dr. Georges will lead group members in boosting positivity and perseverance.

Dr. Colleen Georges is a Nationally Certified Psychologist, Certified Positive Psychology Coach, speaker, educator, and best-selling author who coaches her clients in living and working more joyfully.
