Consistently impressed

I have been consistently impressed with Ginny’s steady pace, positive energy and her ability to mediate, moderate and articulate what any audience, whether a group or an individual, most needs to hear. I look to her for wisdom, advice, and to share new ideas. I highly recommend her as an inspiring leader who helps organizations, and the individuals who care about them, navigate growth and change.

She possesses a unique ability to direct a sharper focus for Boards, volunteers and staff to develop more effective strategies and tactical plans to strengthen their own organizations and increase their effectiveness with practical solutions that reach well beyond scholarship or theory. She drives active cooperation with thoughtfulness, humor, and compassion. She facilitates innovative training and leads workshops in a way that sparks that sought-after “aha moment” that can generate tangible and timely results.

Virginia Lang and I met about three years ago as members of the Peer Education committee for the Whatcom Council of Nonprofits. There, and in ensuing collaborations as colleagues, co-presenters and practicing nonprofit advocates, I have come to know Ginny as a seasoned professional with a profound understanding of the role that mission driven organizations play in addressing needs.
