“Having been in the volunteerism field for more than 30 years, it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks–or so I thought before listening with rapt interest in what Tobi had to say. Her correlation of what we do in volunteer administration with neuroscience is brilliant, and offered me many “A-ha” moments. Thanks for opening my eyes to look outside the box, and our own field, for inspiring ways to engage and retain our valuable volunteers!”

“Tobi impresses in many ways: smart, articulate, savvy, knowledgeable, experienced, dedicated and extremely competent. But three qualities stand out: her passion for what she does, her personal and professional commitment to her clients, and her insight and openness that inspire trust.”
Alison Jones-Nassar, CVA Manager of Volunteer Resources, Virginia Supportive Housing
“We heard nothing but positive and enthusiastic feedback from the attendees, and personally I feel it was exactly what I was looking for and needed from that day. In fact many people said that they thought this was our best conference ever! Tobi is a real visionary! She thinks big and encourages people to stretch their brains… and look at ideas from different perspectives. I also think she elevates the profession as a whole and I am thankful that she is out there, getting us excited with these big thoughts!”
