“My coach has been pivotal in my development as a nonprofit leader. As a prior social worker, with minimal background in business or the nonprofit sector, the guidance my coach has given me has helped shaped my skill set and equipped me to effectively lead Zoie’s Place. Thank you for all you have done to prepare me for what’s to come.” Brandy Coty, Founder and Executive Director of Zoie’s Place
“What I love about my coach is her amazing ability to back up every bit of advice she gives with scripture. She helped me to realize that I was spending all of my time sharing the “mission” and no time sharing the “vision” of my ministry (Habakkuk 2:2). It’s so great to have such an amazing mentor that always seems to help me with truth, love, and simplicity!” Leisa McKibbin, juviGAP
