Director of Nursing and Allied Health
Mustard Seed Community Health
With Jeanne’s expertise in the process of writing, program design and evaluation, she led us in development of this grant and two strong community partnerships for the execution of the program.
I wholeheartedly recommend Jeanne and would engage her for grant writing and her other skills again, knowing her professional guidance will lead us down the path to success!
PEAK Adventure Ministries
"The most valuable service Jeanne performed for our organization was to tell us what we needed, not give us exactly what we asked for. Jeanne invested the time to understand our real needs and proposed that we pursue the foundational work of developing a strategic plan before writing funding proposals."
"Jeanne is very knowledgeable, organized, detailed, and -well very compassionate. She assisted me in the college's emergency grant situation, and we finished days before the deadline. Without her we would have no hope with a proposal, now we know there is a very strong chance we will be awarded....she is our Grant Angel!!"
