“I’ve been working in nonprofit marketing and communications for plenty of years, and I’ve worked with a lot of consultants.

Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership

“Suzanne has simply been invaluable to me and HOBY. Her impact on HOBY is felt on daily basis. Through her help and leadership, we built a successful Advancement Team that is greatly strengthening HOBY through on-going fundraising, contact development and strategic initiatives. None of this would have been possible without Suzanne’s help. Suzanne is always pro-active, creative and professional, delivering superior results in every project. I’ve worked with many consultants over the last 25 years, but Suzanne stands out among them all. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

Dress for Success Phoenix

‘We had several new and enthusiastic board members at Dress for Success Phoenix with great ideas, but no clear strategy. Suzanne was able to provide leadership and guidance to help our organization for the next three years. Suzanne facilitated a two-day board retreat and provided clear and tangible goals along with providing ‘post’ support to ensure that goals are met. Suzanne has been so instrumental to help our organization plan and execute.”
- Lisa Doromal, CEO, Dress for Success Phoenix
