Some nice things people have said that make my face a teeny bit red…


Project and Event Management

“Shari is an incredibly talented writer, researcher, interviewer, event planner and creative maven. I was lucky enough to work with Shari on All Classical Portland’s 30th Anniversary Celebration, for which Shari researched and wrote a 30-year history of the radio station, produced print and video collateral and planned a massive gala. Shari is a true professional and an asset to any organization that hires her. I am grateful to have had the chance to work with her at All Classical and continue to be impressed by her ongoing projects and dedication to bringing creative opportunities to children.” –client, Portland, OR

“Shari is an excellent writer and blogger. She’s been working with clients for many years, and truly understands the unique voice and sales positioning of each client she works with. Shari is also a very good project manager who always thinks outside the box to offer the best solution when managing any project. She’s able to manage a variety of web-based and traditional projects for any client. I highly recommend working with Shari.” –client, Portland, OR

  • “What a splendid evening Sunday was! [My wife] and I enjoyed it so much–everything was perfect, and we thank you a thousand times for inviting us.”
  • “Okay, not another minute must go by without my telling you what an absolutely splendid party it was and how wonderfully you orchestrated it.”
  • “I just wanted to thank you for a perfect evening!  The event was absolutely wonderful – so well organized, and so well received…”

“…I had the pleasure of partnering with Shari for more than 6 years when she was the Executive Director of the Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering (TAME). Shari is wicked smart and a true pleasure to work with. Her evidenced leadership spanned across the state and beyond, with gained trust and respect from board and committee members; strategic partners. Shari enabled creativity within our partnership and opportunities to enlist IBM board members, contributing to the bigger mission of work of TAME. Her collaborative spirit and dedication to successful outcomes is infectious…Shari is a delight to know, keeps you laughing and is steadfast and tenacious in all that she pursues. Shari is the leader you can count on with transparency of understanding and a “let’s do it” attitude! I highly recommend Shari as she would be a tremendous asset to any organization.” –Corporate Partnership Liaison, IBM, Austin, TX
