“I have worked with Alison in connection with her work for a start-up 501(c)(3). She has excelled in all aspects of board development, strategic thinking, and developing and executing the organization’s plan. I would trust her with any aspect of board development. She lends herself to an organization’s vision, and she is tireless and conscientious in bringing that vision to reality. Without her, I don’t know where we’d be.”

“In simple terms, Alison has the “Midas Touch.” She truly has the knowledge, experience, energy and commitment to turn any project, program or initiative into a true success. From development of community initiatives to organizational capacity building to grassroots coalitions & the list goes on… Alison will make the ordinary, “extraordinary.”
Hilary Juel Asfary, former Board Chair, HandsOn Greater Phx & Intel Corporation Community Affairs Manager, Denver, CO
Passion is number one when describing Alison. She’s a dynamic nonprofit leader, thinker, community-builder, connector and strategist. She prods and provokes to make whatever you are working on, thinking about, struggling with – come out better. She’s a champion and cheerleader and committed consultant who gives her clients, her projects, her community her all.
I’ve had the good fortune to work with Alison on leadership gatherings, nonprofit fundraising, nonprofit start-ups, marketing and outreach initiatives and much more. She’s made me a better practioner than I was. And to this day she still challenges me.
Rhonda Bannard, Chief Connector, Inspired Connections, Phoenix, AZ
Alison is one of the most positive, intuitive, focused, compassionate leaders I have ever met. Whatever the cause, program or initiative, Alison will exceed all expectations!
Deva Hirsch, Executive Director for the Abraham J. & Phyllis Katz Foundation
Alison’s knowledge and enthusiasm for building and sustaining nonprofits is unparalleled. Alison has a unique capacity to inspire, coach and bring out the very best in each of us. She knows how to make an impact in the community and how to bring teams together to make a real difference. I loved working as a senior staff member of her team at HandsOn Greater Phoenix and then with her as a corporate executive philanthropically investing in community initiatives she spearheaded. I always look forward to opportunities to work with Alison and could not recommend her more highly – she is a force.
