Working on business strategy with Annie is equal parts cocktail party and rocket science. She’s one of those rare people who can deliver incisive, actionable insights (including, ahem, the occasional criticism), in a way that makes you feel you’re just the right person for the job–even as she’s helping you figure out what the freaking job is!Scott Squire, Owner, NonFiction Media
Annie challenges us to think more globally and to make sure all voices are heard. She is an amazing facilitator that brings out the best in everyone present.Janet Schmidt, Network Director, SOWA
Annie’s ability to discern the dynamics of group work and process are invaluable. Annie goes above and beyond to produce results that matter. She adapts to unanticipated change and every challenge that arises.Amanda Thomas, Director of Community Partnerships, Tacoma Public School District
Annie gets results. She has the ability to synthesize multiple pieces of a complex project and produce cohesive outcomes.Jackie Jainga Hyllseth, Quality Initiatives Director, SOWA
Annie brings a positive outlook, she reminds us that we have more in common than we do different. She draws us back to what we are working on without people ever feeling shut down. Annie kept us moving in the right direction and focused on a goal so we could accomplish what we set out to do.Kim Reeves, Customer Service, GLi
Annie is a creative communicator and she is very clued in to organizational dynamics. Annie’s kindness, personal integrity and thoughtfulness make working with her a joy.Yael Falicov, Executive Director, EcoViva
The way Annie facilitates meetings is excellent. She would help us figure out what we needed with a positive energy that you just don’t see every day. This led to a lot of synergy which helped us drill-down on some key issues resulting in excellent solutions that worked well for the various teams involved.Tye Walker, Customer Service, GLi
Since we’ve been working together, I’ve reached past the borders of my comfort zone and acquired new clients. Anna’s a gem!Kathy Paul, Owner, Messagecraft Marketing
