Dear Krista,

I can’t thank you enough for choosing our group for the honor of receiving the private concert with five of Texas’ Country Music Legends. I know our group truly felt special that evening. I heard there were several shout outs on social media including, “My wife has the best job” and “Look at my day at work today!” It was a pleasure having the opportunity to meet the Seales and be introduced to Hog Heaven. We are so grateful for the Resiliency Center and for the leadership support of this program. I truly believe these types of programs help to support me in my role, and give our care providers a boost and contributes to their longevity with the organization. Thanks we gave our group a fantastic glimpse what Hog Heaven has to offer. Looking forward to hosting our retreat there in July. Thank you for all you do to support Rehab!

Excellent choice of team building activities. Really appreciated the sticky note on the back exercise at the end.  Krista makes everyone very relaxed and open to share, she is a gem!

– Physician

This was a fantastic retreat and I think it was really great for our culture and helping us validate our feelings and place in the hospital. I really think this day of respite helped us as a team and as individuals and I have nothing but positive feedback to give.

I think these retreats are wonderful and really bring us closer and help us deal w/ the pressures of our work. I feel so lucky to be able to participate in them and hope we get to continue!

– Research Analyst

I really enjoyed this retreat – it exceeded my expectations. I got a lot out of it and even signed up for the Resiliency Training 6-week course to continue with the information. Thank you!!

– Research Analyst

I loved the planned activities discussing topics about wellness, but also how they were balanced with free time to do what felt right for us!

– Physician

This retreat provided just the right balance of facilitated activity and free time to build program cohesion. The venue was utterly amazing and the food and amenities were greatly appreciated. Krista’s balanced approach showed how well she listened and attended to what our group really needs. Thank you for the wonderful experience!

– TCSC

Krista, thank you so much for planning such a great retreat for the team. It was helpful to get some time to let go and hike and play away from the hospital. I appreciate all that you do!

– Dietitian

This is exactly what our team needed. Krista did an amazing job facilitating the retreat through validating conversations and activities that addressed the needs and concerns of the group. I left feeling closer to my team, with a better idea of how to communicate with each colleague, as well as feeling inspired and motivated about where our department could be in 5 years. She took information about the department’s struggles/areas for improvement and created a seamless, fun, and encouraging retreat that brought the group closer together. THANK YOU for this!

– Child Life Specialist

I think this retreat was extremely effective! Colleagues of mine who I had heard dealing with feelings of burnout and potentially wanting to leave Dell are talking about this retreat as a turning point which is EXACTLY what we needed! Thank you Krista for everything you did for this department!

– Child Life Specialist

I really enjoyed the retreat because it allowed the space for programming, individual space to be alone and relax, as well as space to spend time together as a group outside of the hospital setting. The retreat provided an opportunity for the team to build stronger bonds and to just be our human selves. Thank you so much for doing this work!

– Trauma Services

Thank you so much. This was an excellent experience and I can’t wait to do it again!
