"Beth is amazing at what she does and I’m so lucky to work with her. She interacts with my staff in a way that motivates all of us. She has skills in so many areas – IT, software, accounting, community resources, communication, leadership, problem-solving, project management, and more. Beth understands that owning a small business carries a special attachment. She’s sensitive to the emotions involved and one of the best things about Beth is I can be myself around her – she encourages it. The investment I made with Beth has been a needed change in my business management experience. Instead of feeling constantly overwhelmed by the business, I’m enjoying my practice again. Worth every penny."

Founder & Owner / Boise Natural Health Clinic
"We engaged with Beth to assist our clinic in performing a deep dive and redefinition of our strategic direction and practice culture. She worked closely with the stakeholders to facilitate personal introspection and how individual roles intertwine with the overall practice dynamic. Beth kept us at the table even when difficult conversations needed to happen and she helped to facilitate them. At the end of the process, we defined our management structure and practice culture setting a foundation for future direction. Beth has the ability to communicate and understand group dynamics and is able to facilitate a collective move forward."

"Beth guided our large group full of diverse and sometimes conflicting ideas to develop a cogent and comprehensive strategic plan. We could not have done this ourselves."
Randy Magen, Ph.D.
Director / Boise State School of Social Work
"Beth assisted us for a few years with culture and business planning. What sets Beth apart is her ability to listen, truly understand her client’s needs, and focus on the individual and collective strengths of the team. Addressing the cultural aspect of our practice transformed the work we do and enabled us to truly focus on our business. Once that foundation was laid, Beth assisted us in a critical business transition. We now enjoy an environment of professionals who work together with respect and cohesiveness honoring our complementary skills for the overall success of our practice."
Paula Wiens, R.N.
Owner & Founder / Treasure Valley Midwives
"We were impressed by Beth’s ability to see the big picture, her high level of integrity, and her affable compassionate character. Beth’s support and direction helped us lay a firm foundation for our organization and ensured our future success."
Co-Founder & Managing Director / Boise Rock School
"As a solo practitioner, I was overwhelmed with all of the tasks required to run a business. Beth helped me understand which tasks were key and prioritized them in a reasonable time frame. She also provided me with systems to help accomplish the tasks. The value of this? There is more flow in my work, my business is steady and because the path is so much clearer there is room to ponder how and when to grow the business. To top it off, Beth does all of this with kindness and a gentle touch. I am very grateful for Beth's work and recommend her highly."

“The City of Meridian Community Development Department originally contracted with Beth because of her strong reputation for problem-solving, facilitation, and strategic thinking. We were not disappointed. Beth was our consultant for two projects: a multi-jurisdictional initiative to promote agricultural innovation and the Health Sciences and Technology economic development initiative. Both efforts were complex and started off as quite open-ended. For both initiatives, Beth worked with an array of stakeholders and sifted through diverse opinions and data to bring needed focus. Both projects ended with a well-developed “game plan” that was previously lacking. Because of her efforts, we were able to focus our time and resources on specific goals and actionable items.”

"Beth’s experience with business planning and her ability to approach it in a balanced and focused way were what set her apart. Not only was she present with me as an individual, but she also took the time to understand me as a unique business owner."
Kathleen Berg, D.P.T.
Founder & Owner / Vitam
"We recently worked with Beth to identify strategies for improving our outreach and messaging of our services. The work resulted in a complete overhaul of our organizational brand including a new vision statement, new logo, and updated website to ensure our services are clear to our stakeholders as well as to the general public who may not have known of our organization in the past. We're very pleased with the results, and, as we evolve, we will not hesitate to reach out to Beth again for an even deeper dive. We're grateful for all her assistance."
Executive Director / Idaho Parents Unlimited
"I was fortunate to have the opportunity to obtain a comprehensive program assessment from Beth. She helped me identify best practices for attracting and interacting with business partners and outlined tangible ways to bolster marketing and outreach. Beth was able to help me identify areas where our program's messaging was lacking or in need of clarification. She also helped me navigate issues relating to contracts, personnel, and communication. Before working with Beth I struggled to enact necessary measures to ensure my program could survive and thrive. Now I know that I have the proper conditions in place to face the future with confidence. Beth helped me to envision the future of my program and create a map to get there. Beth was honest and kind, offering insights from her 20 plus years of experience. I highly recommend working with Beth to take your business to the next level."

“We made great progress on our board governance and there is a new dynamic present where change and increased effort by members is now the norm. Beth was instrumental in this change. "
Robert Holman, M.D.
Board Member / Idaho Fish and Wildlife Foundation
"Before I started working with Beth, I was frustrated and unclear about how to organize my professional offerings. Through focused guidance and a well-balanced leadership style, I was able to structure my business in a way that felt authentic, professional, and exciting. She held the flashlight ahead just enough for me to keep motivated and push through when I was “stumped”. As a holistic practitioner, she did an amazing job of blending the logistical brain and compassionate heart into a professional structure. I now see immediate and long-term guiding templates that will keep me organized and working with my clients…which is where I want to be! I highly recommend Beth for solopreneurs and non-profit leaders striving to be more effective in their delivery and offering of services."
Owner & Founder / Coalesce
“I worked with Beth over five years around strategic direction, planning and communication, organizational development, and sustainability planning for the City of Boise. Beth is very strategic in nature, thoughtful, committed, and hardworking when it comes to being able to produce unique products that work for us. I really appreciate that she doesn’t approach a project with a package of one-size-fits-all products but rather customizes around what makes sense to the organization."
Former Chief of Staff / City of Boise
“I worked with Beth for two years off and on building my business. It was one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made and the best money spent on a local, ethical, and value-based company. Beth truly gives her heart and soul into this work and because of her investment in core foundational values, individuals that work with her thrive."
Founder & Owner / Yothera Method
“We worked with Beth for several years in the early stages of establishing a board of directors and programming/services for the Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS). She assisted us with board development, strategic planning, and operations. Beth is a trusted partner whose ability to listen, facilitate, and guide was invaluable in helping BUGS lay the foundation for our services, programs, and community partnerships.”
Former Board Chair / Boise Urban Garden School
“When Girls on the Run board members needed someone to facilitate the creation of a strategic plan, I thought of Beth immediately. The strategic planning process wasn’t one size fits all. She took the time to not only understand the organization as a whole but to get to know each individual board member and identify their specific goals and objectives for the sessions. Beth was a calming presence as we worked through the growing pains of the organization."
Founder & Board Member / Girls on the Run
"Throughout my career, I have attended many meetings and Beth has by far been the best at facilitating and running a smooth meeting. It’s always a pleasure to attend her meetings and know there is a person in the room paying attention to everyone’s needs, various agendas, and professional backgrounds. Not only is she is very comfortable and confident in herself, and managing meeting agendas, but she has a unique ability to make others comfortable."
Boise City Ada County Continuum of Care
"Before I started working with Beth I felt stuck, out of alignment with my values, and incredibly frustrated with my current position. After my sessions, I have a stronger understanding of my values and what to look for in new opportunities so my work environment aligns with my values and goals. I have gained skills to shift my perspective of my current position so I can learn as much as possible while I am in the position. Also, so I do not experience the same frustrations again in my next position. I have goals for my job search to hold myself accountable and a clear path forward with certifications to help me in my career. I know that if I need further assistance in my professional development or need another perspective I can count on Beth to listen and help coach me through any challenge."
"After working with Beth I feel I’m better aligned with my personal mission. I now have the tools to find my direction when I get off track. Even during this uncertain time, I can focus on what it is I need to help me cultivate a place to land professionally and personally. She taught me to trust myself and use my wisdom like a bread crumb trail to stick my landing."
