"Barbara was the key element that kept our Rural Congress gathering fluid and on track. She has a keen sense of organization and timing, which is so crucial for arriving at measurable outcomes."

- Colleen MacLeod, former Union County Commissioner

"I am greatly impressed by Barbara’s ability to bring the voices of many diverse people together into one unified message. Our organization’s board was comprised of twenty members, each representing a unique sector of our local economy. Barbara managed our annual board retreat with skill and finesse. She worked hard in the retreat planning process to build an agenda that would meet staff needs for action items, provide ample time for structured “big picture” brainstorming and debate, and ensure measurable results at the end of the day. Thanks to Barbara’s management of our strategic planning process, we were able to begin each year with an action plan ready for implementation and a list of metrix by which to reliably measure progress towards our goals."

- Genevieve Scholl-Erdmann, former Marketing Director, Hood River County Chamber of Commerce
