'Stories Trainers Tell'
Consultant's new book helps trainers excel ~by KeleMarie Lyons

After 15 years of operating her own organizational development consulting firm, Mary Wacker has embarked on a new adventure. Wacker is the co-author of a new book, Stories Trainers Tell - 55 Ready-to-Use Stories to Make Training Stick.
Wacker says her drive to write began when she worked for the City of Milwaukee. "I was writing civil service tests and felt like I was screening a lot of people out of jobs," Wacker says. "I have a passion for helping people gain the skills they need to do their work well and live successful lives."

Wacker graduated cum laude with a bachelor of science degree in psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and later secured her master's of science degree in educational psychology at UWM.
