Dr. Compton became interested in the study of body language after suffering an illness and finding it hard to communicate with other people. She learned to decode facial expressions and gestures to decipher what everyone around her was saying. After her recovery, she decided to delve deeper into the study of nonverbal communication so she could use it in her classroom and later in her position as a corporate trainer. She is a certified Body Language Trainer by the Science of People, certified in METT 3.0, SET, METT Profile, METT Plus, PEG Workplace, PEG Family, and PEG Law Enforcement by Dr. Paul Ekman, and has a certificate in the Neuroscience of Learning.
