“Jen’s facilitation was gentle but also strong, helping us define topics, prioritize, clarify, and move towards decisions. She managed to assist us in getting a lot of important business done, while also observing, naming and attending to feelings. Masterful!”
Rachel Grob, Director, Qualitative and Health Experiences Lab at the UW-Madison Dept of Family Medicine and Community Health and Center for Patient Partnerships
“I hired Jen as a consultant to help manage a very complex and nuanced change management project. I found her strategic insights and her capacity to get things done absolutely invaluable. Jen skillfully facilitated many challenging meetings, brought important external frameworks to aid our internal conversations, and crucially was able to add extra capacity to keep things moving between weekly and monthly meetings.
The project itself was to help me and other leaders in the department figure out how to shift Sierra Club’s campaigning and organizing culture to better center long-term movement building and racial justice while still delivering short term impact on the crises hammering our planet, our democracy and our communities.
Jen was able to help us design and support us through a multi-year process that eventually led to a transformative toolkit for changemakers and a department-wide reorganization to make that toolkit real. I would bring her on again in a heartbeat, particularly for highly charged and emergent strategic projects.”
