Trainer Statement

Dr. Bukky would describe Motivational Interviewing as an approach that literally changed who she is as a human being.  It has influenced all aspects of her life including the way she engages as a trainer, facilitator, clinician, friend, and wife.  Given the privilege of membership in MINT, she is passionate about introducing others to MI and guiding them in their learning.  If there was only one thing Dr. Bukky was purposed to do in life as a professional, it is delivering trainings.  She has a strong value for collaboration and committed to facilitating trainings that are inspiring, dynamic and effective.  She believes that adult learning experiences should be filled with evidence-based information in addition to experiential activities that are fun and evoke powerful emotions, which enable learning and growth.  She is also dedicated to helping organizations identify a sustainable plan for implementaion and retention of learning.
