“Kathi assisted our organization in our strategic planning process in Summer 2010. Not only did she help craft the agenda for our staff/Board retreat, she facilitated the retreat skillfully while keeping an eye on our objectives for the day. She has a knack for listening deeply, and encapsulating what is said in a way that I could use immediately. Kathi is rare because she has talents in many areas (writing, listening, facilitating, coaching) but most importantly because she cares about her clients’ success, and that shines through into all aspects of her work. She strives to understand her client’s needs and then deliver solutions- what a great resource!”
