ABOUT US

who is your dance partner

I come alive when I lead clients to planning their firm's growth. 

 

In almost twenty years in this industry I've seen it all. From the end of big federal spending to the crash of 2007 – I know the industry landscape like the back of my hand. A/E firms are getting creative to win work and I help my clients stand out in the modern marketplace.

 

Streamlining proposals is my bread and butter: Let me step in to save the sanity of your technical crew (keeping them focused on billable hours). I know your clients, their areas of concern and the nuances of each submittal. My final product will follow the RFP, answer their questions and make sure your quals shine through on every page!

 

I’m well acquainted with all the players the clients, the primes and the subs. With my experience, and connections, I am able to cultivate meaningful relationships with dream clients and can read through the lines on an RFP. 

Let's get strategic: How will your firm grow in the next three to five years? Where is money being spent and who is investing in the big projects? I will help you figure out the whos, whats and hows in a step-by-step recipe. Together we will outline your growth to take your firm to the next level and increase your backlog.
