"We could not have asked for a better advisor! With an unprecedented amount of experience and knowledge, Laurel was able to develop our logic model and share with us the necessary tools and resources required to accomplish our goals. Her kindness and patience as well as her desire to see us succeed reignited in us the confidence we need to seek out our mission and purpose."
Michelle Ceran, Advisory Board Member
Health Education Action League for Haiti

"Our success is predicated largely on the work of Laurel Molloy.  She organized our efforts,
documented our work, created programs for camp, and advised the fledgling charity
in its fund-raising and compliance activities.   Without Ms. Molloy's tireless and professional
efforts, we could not have achieved all we did in such a short time."

Larry Levy, Board Chair
America's Camp Foundation
 
"Laurel facilitated a very productive and participatory series of workshops to develop and document our organization’s theory of change. This was a complicated task that required input and vetting from a number of different stakeholders - it could have easily gone off track or been dropped due to competing priorities. With Laurel’s careful guidance, we were able to develop our model. More importantly, we succeeded in implementing a process that gathered input broadly and resulted in a product that we can now to take to our board and external audiences. We really appreciate Laurel’s wealth of experience, her calm demeanor and her insightful questions that pushed us to think outside our comfort zones. She was generous with her time and adapted to our needs throughout the process. We highly recommend her!"
Susan Bergson, Director of Monitoring & Evaluation
AmeriCares


"We had high expectations and a demanding team, and Laurel worked with us exceptionally well. Laurel is a skilled facilitator, who guided us in a valuable discussion about the connection between our organization's actions and intended outcomes. She facilitated a productive brainstorming process by incorporating insights I had shared prior to our session, and in a short time helped us develop a concrete framework to map out our future work. The senior management team gave Laurel a uniformly positive evaluation."
