Client Comments

“It’s rare to collaborate in a professional capacity with someone who, not only has the wealth of experience and instinct that are vital to meeting mission goals, but also has the heart of a teacher. Lynn has guided us in focusing our campaign mission and in implementing the processes and policies that are helping us to meet our goals faster, more efficiently. Her background and years of experience in advancement, organizational structure and Board service training are so impressive and she shares her knowledge with enthusiasm and great skill. Lynn is simply the best and I highly recommend her services to one and all!”

“The Baton Rouge International School Foundation (BRISF) hired Lynn to perform a feasibility study in advance of critical school campus construction needs. Lynn fearlessly accepted the engagement despite known challenges including the fact the Foundation is young with little fundraising experience and the school we support is relatively new and does not yet have an alumni or donor base. Lynn is methodical in her approach and leads the fundraising team with efficiency and grace. She is a valuable confidant who offers real solutions and assistance to implement them. Lynn can work around unforeseen road blocks and frustrations. Most importantly Lynn exhibits a true belief in our mission and a desire to see the Foundation achieve our fundraising goals.”

“I want to thank you for doing a spectacular job with our training. It was perfect! Your knowledge and experience was a gift to our class. Thank you.”

“Lynn really put our annual gift giving campaign on the map at Woman's. She works hard and expects others to do the same. She gets you fired up and follows up in detail and is really persistent in her goals.”
