I have had the awesome experience of working with Cynthia Valentine for over 15 years as a Spoken Word Artist, Poet and Recording Artist and she is both Professional and Organized. Recently I did my very first appearance as a theater actor in a stage play and her coaching, directing and production was top notice and working with her allowed me to be free to express my self as an actor. I highly recommend her.
