You don’t get to know Afsaneh  through her resumé but through her stories. Stories of attending a Catholic school while living in a muslim country. Stories of studying during revolution & missile attacks and making a choice to be an instrument for  growth. Afsaneh received her BS in Chemistry in 1990 but soon realized that her passion for human relations and development surpasses her love for labs and titrations. After moving to the US in 2001 and establishing herself as a Business Development VP in corporate America she went back to school and got certified as an Integral Coach in 2010. Stepping out of her comfort zone yet again, she started her practice to pursue her passion for coaching and development. As a lifelong learner, an avid reader and a lover of nature, Afsaneh, AKA Sunny, brings her knowledge and experience together and helps individuals and organizations develop through deep understanding of the Enneagram.  She also conducts workshops and private coaching sessions in her office in Roswell, GA where she and her 15 year old son call “home”.


President of The Center for Laughing and Learning: Where ROI Meets LOL, June shares her research and expertise using the power of laughter to build team cooperation, camaraderie and kindness which boost the bottom line. The return on investment (ROI) of laughing out loud (LOL) with colleagues, clients and those for whom they care is measurable in retention, loyalty and trust. A former college administrator, June draws on her experiences in education, banking and career development to teach audiences to initiate humor to gain recognition, respect and reward. June’s wit and wisdom has appeared in publications and media outlets as diverse as CNN, The Boston Globe, Inc., Selling Power, Harvard Management Communications Letter, Speaker, Competitive Edge, Redbook, First for Women and Gannett News Services syndicated columns. June inspires all who hear her that regardless of the bumps in the road, we still have the capacity for humor and happiness and the power to lighten up and “Make Life a Great Ride.” June Cline is the Southern, Sassy and Savvy, Harley Riding Humorist ready to inspire your with team the power of initiating laughter and learning.
