Dear Client:

Working with you has been a great pleasure.
I hope the service we provided exceeded your expectations!


Board Chair Glasgow Club – Thank you for all the help you’ve been to the Glasgow Club and we sincerely appreciate it. Our entire Board has tremendous respect for you and hates to see you leave. You have our best wishes for a successful career as a consultant and I’m sure that it will be helpful to a lot of organizations.
Board Chair – I’m not sure we could have gotten to where we are today without your help. We quickly established trust and confidence in you and you never disappointed us. You were there for us the many times we needed you and the results of all of that work are obvious.
Executive Director, Boys & Girls Club – You have changed our organization, staff, and lives forever! What a mentor you have been! Thank you doesn’t seem like enough…..we will strive to walk in your footsteps every day and make you proud! Thank you
Sr. Vice President of Operations Southwest Missouri Bank – It has been a great pleasure to have gotten to know and work with you I wish it would have been longer. You have certainly helped me in so many ways ….
Executive Director, Boys & Girls Clubs of Poplar Bluff – I think I speak for all of us by saying we are very grateful for all of the hard work and effort that you bestowed upon us. You have a legacy here of a Club that went from 200 members and two sites, to six sites and close to 500 kids a day. Words will never do justice to what we have accomplished and lives that are impacted daily from your work.
Director, Boys and Girls Club of the Greater West Plains Area – It has been a pleasure working with you over the last 16 months. Where would I begin to start an explanation? The highs are many, the lows are few. With your guidance I have learned much. The result of your efforts working with our club have given over 150 kids in our community a place to call home. You are a rare breed Nancy. You do not act in your own self-interest and are one of the most honest individuals I have ever had the privilege to work alongside.
