Justin is a highly knowledgeable and effective professional I had the good fortune to work with during a board restructure project. I met Justin though a service organization, Catch A Fire, who pairs up professionals with non profits in need of professional services. Justin volunteered to help Turning Point Community Services analyze their current board and develop a framework to better manage and upgrade the board to better suit the needs of the agency. Justin was professional, timely, and frankly a godsend to TPCS. The agency’s expectations were far exceeded and I, as well as the agency, is extremely pleased to have worked with him and look forward to continuing to implement the framework he created with TPCS. I can not say enough good things about Justin and hope to have the pleasure of working with him again.Kristen Ford

I have worked with many consultants over my almost 25 years in the not-for-profit sector and by far, Justin has been the finest consultant I’ve ever had the privilege of working with. He’s extraordinarily detailed oriented, a powerful listener, and can synthesize information very well. An added bonus… he’s highly personable!
My agency was fortunate to be matched with him for a Board Development project through Catch-A-Fire. His deliverables far exceeded anything we hoped for and his understanding of the nuances of board development was always on point and valuable.
I fully and highly recommend Justin for any position, paid or consulting, which he might seek.Christine McCloud
I'm impressed... Sounds like you can help us with a challenge.
Working with Justin was a fantastic experience. I was very impressed with Justin’s ability to grasp the vision and concepts as quickly as he did. In addition to his quick understanding, he dove deep into the project and delivered high quality results. For the time that we worked together, it felt like Justin was truly a part of my team. It was very evident that he put a lot of thought and hours into our project. He was also very easy and a lot of fun to work with. Any team would be fortunate to have him.Gelie Akhenblit
