Sola Writers (New Orleans, LA) Guest Speaker Charly Borenstien-Regueira

SOLA RWA writers Meeting at 10:00 Saturday (1/17/09)

Guest speaker is Charly Borenstein-Regueira, a Certified Professional Life Coach (2003), Certified
Life Coach Trainer (2005), and Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner (1999) with a thriving practice in New Orleans.
She specializes in working with leaders, artists, and executives who want to create positive, sustainable change
in their own lives and in their communities. She also provides seminars, workshops, and individual corporate
coaching services designed to shift workplace environments from places where people receive direction from
others to places where people are moved to do things that they care passionately about.
Ms. Borenstein-Regueira was Founding Director of the Orleans Parish Juvenile Drug Court, where she
pioneered a program providing in-home individual and family counseling and clinical substance abuse treatment
to youth and their family members. Her zealous advocacy for youth ultimately led to the discovery of physical
abuse of incarcerated youth at the hands of correctional officers and the subsequent closure of the Jena Juvenile
Correctional Facility in Jena, LA.
Meet…Munch…Mingle…Make it happen!
