"Jennifer was immensely valuable to our startup in helping us articulate our values and mission, and in writing some of our marketing materials. She is easy to work with, insightful, and excels at identifying the heart of an issue."

Zara Wanlass

Co-Founder & CEO, Alli Center

“The process Jennifer facilitated led our board to develop a firm decision-making framework that’s more clear about our priorities than I thought we’d get to. Just as exciting, the big goals and the discussion around the plan started to get some good creative thinking going about how we can approach some things differently or find some levers to increase our reach and effectiveness.”

Ben Dillon

Board Member, Bur Oak Land Trust; Chief Strategy Officer, Geonetric

“We have real excitement around the possibilities of how Downtown could evolve over the next decade. Jennifer was able to comfortably encourage participation from even the most reserved people. The path was really hashed out between and amongst our directors—we couldn't have gotten there without Jennifer's leadership to set the stage for the underlying strategic direction.”

Her credibility as a subject matter expert, coupled with her enthusiasm and energy, ensured our organization was headed down the right path after our time spent together.”

“Among Jennifer’s particular talents is the ability to move from problem or challenge to solutions, building consensus along the way. She enjoys building relationships and generating results around a common goal.”

“The Iowa College Recruiting Network found Jennifer's facilitation to be extremely valuable, particularly in helping us to define our mission and goals. As a career-focused group, we have a plethora of original, creative and innovative ideas, but having a professional to keep us focused on the immediate task at hand was so helpful in being able to move forward.”
