  • Ruby was one of my best National Trainers and although a specialist with school groups, is effective with any audience. Ruby was frequently dispatched around the country and was always an effective brand ambassador for Mental Health First Aid. I highly recommend Ruby for any project in the behavioral health or training area.

  • One of the best decisions I ever made as a manager was to hire Ruby Brown-Herring. I cannot say enough good things about her, but I will try: professional, passionate, customer-service driven, responsible, prepared, conscientious, reliable, and enjoyable to work with. Anyone has been trained by her, coached by her, or worked alongside her will seek her out to do so again. We all benefit from her wisdom.

  • Ruby is an excellent trainer and events manager. She has excelled in partnering to grow the Mental Health First Aid program across the state of NC. Her passion is matched by her skill and attention to detail. She is highly motivated and forward thinking; preparing people and programs for anticipated next phases to excel past their goals. Ruby’s interpersonal skills make her a pleasure to work with. She has a skill for connecting with people while applying her education and experience in a way that meets the demands of a fast paced and changing work environment. Ruby’s skills include program management, adult education and training, public speaking, event planning, coaching, conference hosting, and data management to name a few. I would highly recommend her without hesitation.
