Testimonials

“Our Board was extremely pleased with the services of Kim during the developing of our new strategic plan. The Board summed up their response to Kim’s strengths well when they stated, “We definitely would like to work with Kim again in the future if there would be a need and an opportunity!”

-Sister Audrey Lindenfelser, East Side Learning Center

 

“When I was superintendent at LaCrescent-Hokah, Jan Vanderwall was recommended to me by a trusted colleague when I needed a respected and talented expert to assist me with an objective review of our transportation contract and routes.  Jan worked directly as the route analyst and as our contract negotiator to help the district take ownership of the bus routes and obtain the greatest benefit for our transportation dollars.  I did not regret taking the advice of that colleague and have since recommended Jan myself, many times, as one of the few really smart transportation guys in the state of Minnesota.”

Connie Hayes, NE Metro 916 Intermediate School District


“Kim is able to listen without judging so that she can truly understand and appreciate the complexities facing nonprofits. Once a clear understanding of issues is established, Kim is able to develop meaningful and realistic plans with and on behalf of the organization that add capacity because she pays attention to both process and end product.”

-Claire J. Chang, Saint Paul Foundation

 

“Jan guided us through the process step by step. He allowed the district to identify our particular needs while counseling on the various consequences of different decisions. We found him to be professional, knowledgeable, and responsive to our questions. Albert Lea Schools would recommend his services to any district needing assistance with their transportation contracting process.  The results of our quoting process helped the district save money and feel more comfortable with our transportation provider.”

Eric Hudspith, Albert Lea Area Schools

 

“What a pleasure it has been to work with Kim. With her help we were able to see how the interplay of culture impacts our work. She helped us to see the how the culture of our communities, our organization’s culture and the role of non-profits in our society all shape our efforts.”

-David Nicholson, Board Governance Study
