Why Chose Dragonfly…

Carol is one of the very best nonprofit leaders I have known in my 40 plus years in non-profit work. When we brought Carol on, she immediately began addressing the issues we were facing. She also successfully took on our grant writing - including highly involved proposals for government funding. Carol is exceptionally able to identify and solve problems. Carol was instrumental in raising our level of professionalism, responsiveness, effectiveness and success. Carol left our agency in so much better shape than when she came!

Carol is brilliant, and an absolute joy to work with! Her ability to coach and educate is unparalleled; I don’t know where I would be today without her support and guidance. She has taken the time to understand and get to the heart of issues in the most professional, genuine and respectful way. She is a nonprofit guru and has helped me develop my own leadership skills. Working with Carol has been a highlight with the daunting task of stepping into a new role as executive director. I absolutely recommend Carol to anyone looking to gain more knowledge or direction in nonprofit leadership!

I have been continually impressed by Carol’s visionary leadership, thoughtful proactive planning, and creative problem solving when facing challenges. Carol helped our agency move from a small, volunteer-based seasonal program to becoming a vital service agency. Carol’s critical leadership was key in developing and implementing a hugely successful capital campaign and developing and implementing solid administrative and operational practices. She is extremely open and easy to work with. Carol has a deep and solid understanding of nonprofit best practices. She brings a wealth of experience, expertise, vision and balance.
