Rachel went far above and beyond her official capacity as a consulting development professional. She supported a wide range of my development activities, from portfolio development to creative communication ideas. She applied her depth of experience as a fundraising specialist to help me engage our constituency in new and creative ways. And she was a friendly, supportive presence throughout our relationship, offering guidance and advice in a warm, professional manner.

Rachel was pivotal in helping move NWF to a indvidual donor strategy that was grounded in data, strong ROI, and donor-centricity. She was always on time with all projects and was always upbeat regardless of what we were working on. Rachel is very passionate about individual donor work and would be a great asset to any company or organization on this front.

“This was absolutely the most helpful session at the conference for me. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that you not only made a sometimes intimidating subject practical and approachable – but that you, as a person, made yourself and your success so accessible. Thank you for passing on these tools and reminding us that fundraising isn’t the realm of Ivy-League MBA Superstars – it’s for people who care enough to nurture relationships.”
