Wendy C. New, Emerita Board Member and Vice President, Evergreen City Ballet
Working with Lise Brenner is like working with someone who has been my colleague for years. We often call on her to work on a moment’s notice and she always jumps in with both feet. I would not hesitate to recommend Lise to any organization in need of top-notch, comprehensive grant writing services, partnership building or any hands on development guidance with their organization.
Lise, thank you for your grace, integrity, professionalism, attention to smallest details, problem solving, flexibility, responsiveness and unflappable attitude.
David Kuizenga, CFO, Common Sense Media (formerly Chief Operating Officer, New Leaders)
I hired Lise for her writing skills and legal and development background. I quickly realized I’d also gained a strategic and creative thinker with an intuitive grasp of organizational strategy and a strong practical understanding of operations. I could trust her to pinpoint gaps, assess and propose solutions, talk to anyone, convene and manage effective cross-functional teams, and write up the processes, policies and procedures that meant it all got implemented.
Melissa Broadus, Director of Communications, Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA)
The quality of her work is impeccable. Lise pushed until she got responses from all but two of the companies that I asked her to contact, which in my industry is no small feat.
Tammy Kohlschmidt, Thermography for Health NY
I learned a long time ago that I knew what I wanted to say, but it never came through on paper. I have employed many writers in the past, but they never captured my true essence or the ideas that I wanted to convey. Lise is dependable, intelligent and creative in her communication and expressing the ideas I want to get across in an effective marketing style. Even when my creative flow is blocked, Lise pulls it out of me and finds the perfect way to convey my message. I will be hiring Lise again and again.
Igor Cenar, CEO, JollyDeck
Lise took our existing materials and transformed them in a way to make the end product far more appealing. When pieces were missing to complete the puzzle, she tracked them down on her own, strengthening the narrative and saving time and resources on our side.

Lise is insightful and thorough. She was able to efficiently synthesize my thoughts into easily digestible, web-friendly statements that draw the user along, tell a story and invite inquiry–phrased in my own voice, but better!
