Director Maura Graber has been a Wardrobe/Image Consultant since 1984 and has been teaching etiquette since 1990.

Says Graber, "My classes are continually evolving to keep up with the challenges we all face, working with young people who miss body language and facial cues, due to the electronic and technological leaps we have made in these past 20 years. Being more globally connected, sadly has affected personal social skills. Awareness of posture, eye contact and observing non-verbal cues from others, is a skill that is being lost to our younger generations. Interpersonal and family communication suffers as well. These classes, while serving up fun, also serve as great tools for getting our youngest generations to smoothly interact socially with others in all areas of life."

I read about Ms. Graber 13 years ago in Victoria magazine & I received my training from her. I am still learning from her. She is an amazing expert in every area of etiquette! I jokingly have told her that when we talk, I should carry a notepad at my side.

Thank you for making yesterday special and really being the catalyst for helping me to make my decision.

My one regret is that I did not meet you or hear about your program before I went to Washington, D.C. As I observed you , I saw a "natural".

A sincere woman with the ability to make others feel comfortable being in your company.

Again thank you for putting a real meaning to civility.

I love it! I really appreciate your time and efforts. Just another thing to add to
your long list of qualifications. Wow!!! You are just simply awesome. My goodness I’m
just lost of words.

Warmest Regards
The Sandra Parks School of Etiquette
