  • Tara Duncan, Manager of Professional and Organizational Development Arizona Game and Fish Department

    Working with Chrissy was a pleasure. Feedback from our Elevate Admins participants was highly positive and reflected Chrissy’s understanding of the Executive Admin role and its importance to organizational success. Chrissy meets both the Execs and the Admins where they are and helps them make progress in their journey together. This program was an important investment for our Agency. Chrissy’s program is unique and I’m so glad we found it!


  • J.M., Sr. Director, GoDaddy

    Chrissy recently took our EA crew through a day of Managing Up training.  It was hands down one of the best training days EVER and the team immediately started putting their learnings to work.  One EA in particular, revamped her entire approach to managing her manager and was able to make instant headway where she previously felt like she was up against a concrete wall!  Other EAs have also taken a new approach as a result of their training, and are reworking their approaches to working with their managers to be instantly more effective and efficient. Huge results in the short two weeks post our learning and these results will permeate and improve our operations tremendously in the long run.  Chrissy did an amazing job delivering the concepts at an easy to follow, easy to follow “up” level and we are forever in her debt!


  • C. Downing, Sr. Administrator, Northrop Grumman

    Chrissy has a wonderful, warm, and highly respectful way of helping people with what they need most. She gets right away what the issue is and knows just how to provide assistance to help you help yourself. She has provided me with great tools that I’m actively using, and getting return on. You won’t regret using her services!
