"Audrey is an excellent grant writer with a proven track record. She designed a grant program for our small college and educated us about grants, deliverables, reporting and sustainability. We also needed someone who could research and find potential grant sources. She brought in several grants each year ranging from a few thousand dollars to several thousand dollars - a range that proved to be a sweet spot for the college and its needs."

"One of the challenges facing nonprofits is sourcing and acquiring funding in support of an organization's programs and dreams. I have served on many Boards of Directors at leadership levels, and have used Audrey's incredible grant writing skills exclusively when organizations I work with have needed this talent. I can vouch for her ability to bring in grant funds for many projects over the years. As Director at River Tree Arts, she secured funds for art programs, musical instruments, concert series and scholarships. Her grant research and writing skills won York County Community College an impressive number of grants during her five years at the college, where I currently serve as former Chair of the YCCC Foundation Board. Her work ethic, instincts and writing skills are outstanding. I would strongly recommend her to any organization seeking grant funding."
