A Trusted Advisor

Susan has been more than a consultant to my organization. She has taken on a valuable role to lead us in the right direction as it comes to philanthropic strategies we have wanted and needed to deploy. She is a key professional asset to our organization.

A Proven, Seasoned Professional

Susan is the consummate professional whose interest in her clients’ success is taken as seriously as her own. As focused as she is visionary, Susan’s greatest strength is her ability to listen and form a ‘complete’ client profile - which leads to less obvious and more strategically unique answers to her clients’ needs. She unearths the whole picture...which leads to deeper, stronger, more relevant and therefore successful campaigns.

A Team Player and Mission Advocate

The assistance Susan provided in my early days as Executive Director have paid off over and over. We still refer to the development plan she designed for us as our go to template for fundraising strategy! Thanks to the solid foundation she helped us to establish we have been financially healthy and able to care for the children we are privileged to care for and grow the program to meet their evolving needs.

A Creative Trainer and Workshop Leader

I received several emails thanking us for your presentation. There were some “WOWS” and “THANK YOUS” all in upper case letters! Thank you again!

I have gotten a lot of positive feedback about the session. In particular, I have heard from several alliance committee members that now realize they need to do a better job of selling (communicating) their project (events and fundraisers). Several have said how impressed they were with you and the research you conducted on credit unions and the alliance structure. Thank you for being so easy to work with and for focusing on the committee’s needs.
