Not only did Katie research the grants but she did the necessary leg work to make sure the grants we were applying for fit our organization. Katie is incredibly good at answering questions and her response time to emails and phone calls are remarkable.

Katie was instrumental in finding and gaining for me a state government grant. She gave me frequent updates as she waded through the complicated and cumbersome government bureaucracy.
