Maria Trabka, Executive Director
Saratoga PLAN

"Conservation Impact helped Saratoga PLAN’s Board identify our most immediate challenges and develop a practical business plan for the next stage of the organization’s maturation. Shelli worked in a very efficient but deep way to understand the context for our work. Even though she has helped hundreds of clients, she has a very personal and respectful approach which manifests into a highly customized business blueprint."

David Guernsey, Executive Director
Business Plan Blueprint

"A vision without a plan is a dream. Shelli and her team provided the Special Forces Charitable Trust (SFCT) with the tools, leadership, and experience that has taken the SFCT from infancy to providing sustainable and meaningful programs in just 4 years."

Carl Griffin, Board President
Inland Northwest Land Conservancy

"Inland Northwest Land Conservancy started working with Shelli and Conservation Impact in the Summer of 2016… Over the next 18 months, Shelli and her team made significant progress in helping INLC define our strengths, assist the board in establishing priorities, working with staff to make them more productive and a myriad of other activities that greatly benefited INLC and our community. Finally, Conservation Impact worked with us in our executive search as part of the interview team and we succeeded in identifying and hiring an excellent candidate."

CDC Training Workshop

"Shelli was terrific - her personality, humor, insights & skills made her session personal, enjoyable, & informative. I learned a tremendous amount & she was able to deliver the material in a very accessible way, cutting through the jargon. Greatly appreciated her candor & willingness to help us after the workshop. The time flew by & her presentation style kept us all engaged. I would love to attend a future session with her on facilitation skills. Thanks so much!"
