What People Say

Testimonials

Highly recommend working with Kathleen! She helped us strategically segment and grow our annual fund and major donor programs by leaps and bounds. She also improved our communications, publications and social media, and project-managed a website overhaul and grant-funded awareness project to completion. An organized and thorough systems-thinker, Kathleen’s creative solutions and "get-it-done-right" work ethic solved the Walkway’s need for expert support that bridged staffing transitions.

I am a better person because of Kathleen. Her personal example when it comes to learning and excellence inspires me — and my work is better as a direct result of her coaching and recommendations. If you get the chance to work with her, jump on the opportunity.

Being very impressed with the work Kathleen did for the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley, I recommended to my law firm that we retain her services to update our website and assist us in developing a marketing plan. We have been very pleased with the work she has done for us. The first thing she did was to really get to know us so that the materials she produced would accurately reflect who we are. We have been very pleased with the result. Kathleen is easy to work with because I believe she is genuinely interested in learning about the businesses she works with and the people who work there.

It is my pleasure to recommend Kathleen. She wrote the Harkness Eye Institute's newsletter "The Viewpoint" for several years as well as a book about our scientific advances. She is an excellent writer, with a intuitive understanding of what will interest and entice potential donors. She has excellent interpersonal skills and is able to work with, and bring out the best from difficult personalities. One of Kathleen's strengths is her outstanding ability to get up to speed quickly with sufficient depth, on new scientific/medical topics, and then to translate and communicate that content for a variety of audiences.
