– Holly McCoy, Executive Director – Literacy Services of Wisconsin
I worked with Ann to develop our company’s first Frontline Leadership Program. After my initial discussion with Ann, I knew that she “gets it”. She is an expert in learning/development and can easily translate her client’s needs into a finished product. She was a great thought partner throughout the program. Ann is amazing to work with and I’m so happy we had an opportunity to work together.

– Jim Paetsch, Vice President, Milwaukee 7
We worked with Ann to develop a team development boot camp series to help us better understand each other and develop skills in communication, conflict resolution, identifying strengths and weaknesses. These team-building exercises were incredibly creative, allowed for practice, reflection and kept us all engaged throughout the series of five workshops. We all walked away with a new respect for one another and will continue to use Ann’s training when dealing with each other, as well as clients and vendors.
– Angela Turner, Principal, AMTC & Associates
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ann in individual and group settings. She has played a pivotal role in fostering the path to stronger team and one-on-one relationships – but in a way that is comfortable to various personalities and styles. I appreciated her diverse sense of people and backgrounds and adjusting quickly to help each individual further their capabilities for their own well being as well as in partnering with others. She has always been calm, fun and personable – and given her breadth of experience in other organizations can acclimate well to a variety of roles, levels and personalities. I would without a doubt recommend Ann to teams as well as individuals looking to further their relationships.
