"Scott and Kristine DeTurk have not only believed in me since
the moment they met me, but have pushed me to succeed.
They have been there every step of the way in my acting career,
encouraging me to follow my dreams, no matter how tough
things got. These are two incredible mentors who have
opened up many doors for me and I owe them everything.
I am so blessed to have the DeTurks in my life."

"De Turk Academy brought
my child to life in a way nothing
ever had. The sense of belonging she has
gained by being
part of the De Turk Community has powerfully impacted how
perceives herself and the world she lives in. Furthermore,
her work with
Kristine & Scott has been her most meaningful
learning experience yet."

"Dear Kristine & Scott-
I'm sorry it's taken so long for me to write to say thank you for
your work with Olivia. I can't tell you what a difference you have made
in her life. I'll try tho- you've made all the difference in the world,
and I hope you feel good about it because I've seen so much growth in
her self confidence, and her self esteem. Her technique and artistry
have begun to develop where she had (of course, I'm her mom) tremendous
but raw talent. I don't say this often but you are one of about six people I have met that are truly doing something they were born to do..."
