Around the country and Canada, our wonderful trainers teach the Accredited Staging Professional Course. Virtually every week, often every day, I receive word from course participants about how much they loved their trainer. I’ve asked each trainer to introduce themselves. Today, Rebecca Henderson will share a word about her background.
