Stephanie is an excellent collaborator and always helps me get clarity on all the details of the project and the message we are sending to funders. I trust her experience and her perspective, and I am grateful for what I consider an excellent blend of professionalism and warmth.

Executive Director, Maine’s First Ship

I worked successfully with Stephanie from several years until our organization began writing grants in-house. Stephanie remained connected, sharing grant resources or organization partnership possibilities. In 2018, when I reached out to her again, we began right where we left off in our writing relationship, and I realized what I had missed—her articulate and detailed feedback, recognition of subtleties in the use of language in grant applications, the direct communication, timeliness, perceptive questions, and thoroughness from beginning to completion of the application.”

Jamie Silvestri

Program Director/Founder/Art Therapist, ArtVan

Stephanie is an excellent grant writer and, with her help, we’ve had great success. She brings to each application her exceptional writing and analytical skills – dissecting each question on any application so that our narrative is concise, specific, and powerful. We’re grateful that, in addition to all that’s been mentioned, she is a fierce advocate for the theater.
