Reviews from seminars

August 2017


"There was a lot of valuable information specific to our area that I hadn't yet seen in my research.
Amy was funny, upbeat, and engaging. Her authenticity and passion for the topic was so evident. I recommend this training to those interested in getting introductory facts about Human Trafficking and becoming educated about how they can become involved in preventing this epidemic." ~ Kalita

"I recently attended a Human Trafficking Educational seminar facilitated by Amy Rouleau.  From the moment I walked into this seminar and engaged Amy, I was moved by her authentic, welcoming spirit and inclusion.  I was present to satisfy the Michigan counselor licensing requirement but the seminar far exceeded my expectations.  There was an abundance of good, solid information that Amy skillfully presented and clipped along effortlessly.  However, there was adequate time for comments, questions and observations.  I am a seasoned counselor but found information on what to look for and how to respond quite eye-opening and very practical.  I have been in practice for over twenty years and there are methods of intervention that I was just not aware of.  I have and will continue to recommend this seminar.  Amy is a warrior in this area and I am happy to have found this resource." ~ Jane

About the Speaker


To say Amy Rouleau’s life has been boring would the understatement of the century! Her love for life, family, friends, and God has made an indelible mark on those who have come to know and love her. Amy’s quick and witty sense of humor add vibrancy and movement to her stories. She will leave you in awe from the life she has overcome and inspired for the life she has created.

Amy, Founder and Executive Director of Restoration Place (2012), a national nonprofit organization. She has earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration, both from the University of Michigan. She has been featured in an exclusive article in the well-respected My City Magazine of Flint, MI. Along with her numerous television appearances to give her expertise on combating human trafficking, Amy has given over 400 presentations and training sessions.

Speaking in public has not always been easy for Amy, but over time, she has become a solid, humorous, passionate, and inspiring speaker. Her passion for helping people use their strengths to build their lives and businesses, leaves her audience wanting and needing more.
