Strategic Planning

Andi listened well and was able to put our thoughts, ideas and priorities into a plan. They provided a clear structure for the process yet gave us time to mull things over. In the end, the plan is all ours. Excellent work.         Ruth Obadal, Former Board President, Eugene Opera

I thought the tone was very welcoming and inclusive, which was a real asset to our group given that we have had very little face time in a physical setting.               Board member, McKenzie Valley Long Term Recovery Group

I think it was a great use of our time. Thank you.               Board member, McKenzie Valley Long Term Recovery Group

Andi was very thorough and professional as our strategic planning consultant. They guided us through the process in a comfortable way that made it easy for us, while facilitating great discussions to get us thinking about important topics. As an organization we really benefited from Andi’s help, and I highly recommend them.         Karen Rainsong, Executive Director, Singing Creek Educational Center

Andi is an assiduous freelancer that gets the work done…great communicator and understands the needs of the client.   Vladimir Paraschiv, Director, Grev Kafi Museum of Art

Thank you very much! You really brought us up to speed as an organization and now we have a more solid foundation with documents & strategic planning. It has also shown me that there are some critical considerations left on the table, but in the end it is all about people.              Dr. Michael James-Long,  President / Board Chairperson, Fair Family Radio

Grant Fundraising

It was a joy to read your grant. ~ U.S. Office of Head Start Program Officer

“I’m so glad I got to work with you on the OHA Measure 110 grant. It was such a good experience and I felt so comfortable with you and also trusted you so very much. I can get a good read on people and I KNEW from our first meeting you were IT!”  ~ Melissa Jones, Director, Stabbin’ Wagon

Andi is excellent at vetting opportunities against the mission of the organization to determine which grants have the greatest chance of success, and is very strategic in their approach to fundraising. I would suggest having a conversation with Andi to see if there is potential for a relationship there. They are based in Eugene but easy to work with remotely. ~ Joan Amaratti, Development Officer

Education & Training

Andi’s help was invaluable to our team. They were mindful not to feed us ideas or take away from our ownership of the assessments while also providing helpful advice in all regards. I very much appreciated Andi’s calm demeanor and professionalism at all times. I felt very well supported.  –  UO Nonprofit Clinic Student

Andi did a great job at monitoring each of us and intervening or offering extra help when Andi knew we were at a breaking point. I could tell Andi often held back or restraining from offering advice or insight when we were struggling through a learning moment, which I appreciated and I know that’s hard to do. – UO Nonprofit Clinic Student

I just received my ACT score and got a 33, which is 2 points higher than my target score! I had such a great experience with the ScoreBeyond program. – JM
