“Mindy is widely known and appreciated in the Milwaukee area for her deep insight into the nonprofit sector.  She advises nonprofits on how to build, retain, and provide succession for their leaders, and she recruits and places leaders for many well-known nonprofits in the area.  But more than that, Mindy is a generous, eager, and devoted volunteer leader to many local organizations and efforts.  She sparks a lot of other people to aid nonprofits, supporting and encouraging their work.  She really understands how to help direct their efforts so they are most successful.  It is part of the reason she has such a great reputation in the community.”

Every once and a while an angel comes along just when you need it, and I feel that way about you and our meeting!  Your perspective was so refreshing, and I left feeling quite energized about putting together my own “transition” plan.  Milwaukee is so fortunate to have your talents and passion for leadership and effective organizations.

Thanks for sharing so much time, insights, laughs, connections to help me make connections & help build my business.  It is so awesome when we help lift each other up.  I am so grateful. I’m also delighted to know that you are helping nonprofits find the right leaders & doers to make a difference in our community.”

“Our conversation on Friday seriously helped me seal the deal with (the organization) and feel confident in how I went about doing it.  And that was just an extension of your help about 2 weeks ago, preparing me for the interview.  And this whole experience is an extension of our open, honest, insightful conversation 2 months ago as I began this journey. So saying “Thank You” just doesn’t seem enough…but as you said to me, we’re here in this community for a looooong time and I know we will FOR SURE stay connected!
