"As a young and rapidly growing school, Barbara's guidance, wisdom, and insights have been invaluable to us. She quickly grasped our school culture and dynamics, and ensured that our mission and values continue to drive our decision-making. Her inspiring leadership and sage advice have been critical elements to our success and ongoing evolution from a start-up school to an educational institution, and we look forward to continuing to working closely with her.

San Diego French-American School
Dual-language immersion school (Nursery-8th)
La Jolla, CA

"We contacted Barbara (who was highly recommended to us) and were able to quickly set up with her a thorough and much-needed advancement operation audit. Her process was very efficient, the price reasonable, and the results extremely valuable to us. Her turn-around time on the report and her overall availability and professionalism before, during, and after the audit far exceeded expectations. Highly recommend!"

Julia Morgan School for Girls
All girls middle school (6-8th)
San Francisco, CA

"Barbara was an invaluable resource when JMSG chose to revive an annual giving campaign after several dormant years. She trained and encouraged board members as they successfully met with families; and was a great support for me as Head of School as we enriched a previous annual giving letter writing practice in a robust and ongoing way throughout the year.

JMSG will continue to benefit as Barbara has given us a roadmap, not only including suggestions as we move forward, but also a practical timeline, sample letters, and conversation scripts for when we meet individually with families. I look forward to continuing to call on her expertise and highly recommend Barbara as a consummate advancement consultant."
