"Katy Ridnouer is an exemplar professional with whom I've worked on several grants. She is timely and consistent with the mission and vision of our school and the goals of the grant. Throughout various projects, her knowledge has created a seamless grant procedure with successful outcomes. I continue to wholeheartedly recommend her."

- Maria Mills, Director of Carolina Charter Academy 

“Katy worked with the SABA Board to edit, revise, critique, and provide continuous feedback on our charter application. While she was extremely clear, helpful, and strategic, she assisted and advised us with love and the same passion that drove us to write our charter application in the first place. Thank you, Katy, for all you have poured into SABA!"

- Valencia Toomer, Founder and Head of School of SABA

It has been a pleasure having you as my coach. You have been honest and able to identify patterns that I did not see my-self. You have made me reflect and pushed me to better person and leader. I am very grateful for your service and expertise."

- Ted Duncan, School Director of Brevard Academy
