When you work with Cheryl, you will end up with information that is truly useful to you. Cheryl will take the time and make sure you craft a plan that will get you what you need. Along the way, you will learn something.
– Kirstin Nielsen, Exhibit Development Manager, Minnesota Children’s Museum
Before working with Cheryl, I had some experience working with evaluators and it wasn’t positive. Cheryl has a different approach, much more of a team effort, focused on making the project better. She’s very good at listening and hearing what you are trying to do. I really trust her opinion and her judgment.
– Jeanmarie Walsh, Associate Director of Education, Long Island Children’s Museum
Cheryl is personable and puts people at ease. Our focus group participants felt very comfortable with her and that they were listened to and respected.
– Jennifer Nelson, former Immigrant Resources and Services Coordinator,
Hennepin County Library
One of Cheryl’s strengths is her overall knowledge of the informal learning field. Her knowledge of funding sources and relevant projects was very helpful. She’s worked with many different types of institutions and is able to synthesize the strengths of different projects and come up with a fresh approach. I wanted to work with her because I knew I would learn from her – and I did!
– Carey Tisdal, Principal, Tisdal Consulting
She comes in open, flexible, trying to understand what you want to accomplish, as opposed to just telling you what she knows. She listens and is very attuned to where you are coming from. Cheryl really got our organization. You need someone who doesn’t just give you something generic, that’s not effective.
– Steve Bromage, Executive Director, Maine Historical Society
In terms of proposal writing, Cheryl is really good at talking through the program and designing an evaluation plan that is very well-received by the funding source.
– Suzanne LeBlanc, President, Long Island Children’s Museum
With the information we have from working with Cheryl, we are better able to understand what visitors are learning and taking away from our experience. This information can be used to help us prove the need for the programs, to show that they are effective and have value.
