a few Kind Words: Nonprofit organizations

Her tireless energy and strategic thinking skills have helped elevate and grow many organizations; I would highly recommend Jen to any company, client or partner.”
— Marta Ferro, President, Starfish Impact
“Jen is a thought-provoking presenter and a great storyteller. In our workshops, she put sometimes difficult-to-cover topics like brand management into simple terms. Her knowledge of marketing is deep, and goes beyond any simple listing of recommended activities. We are proud to have Jen as part of our presenter team.”
— Loren Guerrero, Product Development Officer, Mercy Corps NW
“I have the had the good fortune of working with Jen in both a for-profit and a non-profit organization. She is able to both master operational details and motivate diverse groups of people. She recruited volunteers, secured sponsors for events, helped drive direction on programs and worked hands on with grantees, and was able to consistently leverage her for-profit experience to raise much needed funds and awareness for our cause.”
— Colleen Lafontaine, Managing Director, Step Up Women’s Network
“I attended Jen’s presentation on end of year giving and I got new ideas for reaching new audiences and maximizing gifts from current donors. I really appreciated the hard work that Jen had put into the presentation and the opportunity to network with other nonprofit professionals doing development work. Jen gave generously of her time and knowledge and I know it impacted what we were able to raise at the end of the year.”
— Amie Wexler, Associate Director, Oregon Justice Resource Center
