Working with a knowledgeable and experienced mentor like Alison has made a huge difference in our ability to grow our nonprofit. There are things you would never anticipate coming up as you navigate the formation of a non-profit and having someone to offer first hand advice has solved and avoided a lot of problems for us.
Alison is a walking textbook on how to successfully operate a nonprofit. She intuitively identifies potential pitfalls and develops strategies that lead to successful outcomes. Her wealth of knowledge, care, and candor made her my trusted source for all things nonprofit. I’m truly a better leader because of her.
