"I first met Cyndi when she was working in development at a local non-profit. She is very enthusiastic, engaging, and not afraid to bring donors to the table for the good of the community. Her many years in development have given her a good grasp of the workings of non-profits, and businesses in general. Her interpersonal skills are strong, and as a bonus, she is quick-witted and fun to work with!"

"I cannot more highly recommend Cyndi and Merri of The Results Group of Wisconsin. From our initial meeting, they were dialed in to our organization through their own independent research and dove right in to understand what we were about, why we operated the way we did, our specific nuances and personnel and also the outside view of our organization. Their understanding of non-profit organizations and structures -- as well as their ability to help us think outside the box -- was very valuable as we look to improve our members' experience. Their guidance to both the staff and board, as well as during the in-person strategic planning session and subsequent plan that was put together, is all top notch. We will absolutely have an on-going relationship with Cyndi and Merri, not just because of their depth of knowledge and resources, but because they're also wonderful people."
Director of Operations, Badger Region Volleyball Association
"Cyndi is a very talented professional and a wonderful person to work with! We originally worked on a marketing plan for The Road Home years ago and are now principals in The Results Group of WI, LLC. She has the experience and know-how to create strategic fundraising plans, train Boards of Directors, write grants, develop strategies to create Ambassadors in organizations, and create mission-based special events that bring hundreds of people together to fund nonprofits. Cyndi is GREAT at building lasting relationships with donors who do more because of her care and attention to them. She also understands marketing and how to promote an organization to build maximum awareness and create sponsorships that never existed before. Cyndi is a real pro, you would be fortunate to hire or work with her."
Principal, The Results Group of Wisconsin
"I worked with Cyndi as the volunteer Chairman of The Road Home Marketing and Communications Committee, and as a member of the Capital Campaign Committee for Housing & Hope. She provided focused, energetic staff support to both groups in a way that helped us accomplish our tasks while enjoying working together as we did so. Her commitment to empowering families in need of housing and child support was very impressive and was reflected daily in her work with families, staff, and volunteers. Having worked professionally with staff from over 50 private child welfare and family service agencies during my 30 year career as the Executive Director of the Wisconsin Association of Family and Children's Agencies, I would not hesitate to recommend Cyndi to an agency CEO, as a valuable asset whose work ethic, management style, and 'can do' attitude would be useful in achieving the agency's goals in any number of ways."

"As a Board member for The Road Home, I saw first hand the quality of Cyndi's work as the Development Director. She is organized, creative, and has an excellent rapore with other employees, Board members and donors. She also has a great understanding and compassion for others, and treats all people with dignity and respect, a great characteristic in my book!"
