Doug made a very important point, while talking about subjects that are very hard to hear: 'I have never seen a situation that is hopeless.' This is such an important message.

Doug provided a very in-depth training on stress and the job. Great training and should be given to all offices, not just FSA. (He was) very knowledgeable and (had a) great attitude.
