Stephanie facilitated the Strategic Plan for [our] church. Because it was a church plant, we started from scratch. Stephanie was able to bring people together from different walks of life to provide feedback and concluded with a plan everyone felt good about and played a vital role in. It was an exceptional experience. Stephanie is an intellect with the ability to bring out whatever you need. She does the homework and never cuts corners. She remains engaged and only brings quality service to the table.  Stephanie is extremely organized and her vast experience makes her the perfect solution for many organizational, business, and non profit needs.  Pastor Tony R. Batiste, Hope Community Church
