What Our Clients Say

"I hired Freddi to help my small shop develop a Volunteer Program Assessment Toolkit for one of our clients. With her extensive nonprofit experience, she easily understood what we were trying to accomplish and asked all the right questions. We got off to a great start. The result was more than I could have hoped for – a well-organized tool with automated functionality that our client absolutely loved and will be implementing throughout their state this year. We relied on her exceptional writing skills to write and proofread (and improve) many other documents associated with the project as well. Freddi is reliable, fun to work with and deeply understands nonprofit needs because she’d been there. I would not hesitate to recommend her to those who want to take their program to the next level."

"I've witnessed Freddi's many years of hard work in the nonprofit trenches. She deeply understands the strengths and challenges of providing quality services on a meager budget, and how to do so effectively. She has worked as an advocate, manager, supervisor, grant writer, author, editor and, often, as a one-person development department. Freddi's talents and skills are enhanced by her easy communication style, friendliness and great sense of humor. She is a blast to work with!"
