We were looking to enhance our grant-writing efforts to expand funding opportunities for our programs. Martina  came with a long list of credentials but little did we know how smart, articulate and passionate she is about so many things in life! She listens and has a unique ability to capture in limited words the essence of the project. She can connect many ideas into a few sentences. Her writing is descriptive, passionate, understandable and convincing. She is time-sensitive and can turn ideas into grants in a very short period of time. She is a team player, friendly and respectful of her clients.

FRAN RYAN ~ Former CEO, Impact on Education, Louisville, CO 

“Martina brings a deep sense of commitment and passion to all of her projects, from public outreach to grant writing and research. I trust her to take a task from start to finish with clarity, creativity and excellence. She takes your goals and mission and makes them her own.”

ARTURO SANDOVAL ~ President VOCES, Inc. and Executive Director, Center of Southwest Culture, Albuquerque, NM

Martina was instrumental in the solicitation and acquisition of the majority of silent and live auction items for several events that we executed. Her charisma and professionalism was revered by our team, volunteers, and leaders in the community. She would be an asset to any organization would needs a boost in fundraising reach and capability. She is such an invaluable addition to any team!

KERRI BUTLER ~ Former Owner of Elevated Event Solutions, Denver, CO

I have known Martina for several years, working side by side with her at Regis University as well as on the Colorado Historical Records Advisory Board. Martina is a detailed, innovative researcher, asking interesting questions and drawing fundamentally new data in doing so. She also has the rare ability to articulate and explain that research to different audiences. Martina is a very effective communicator, and that is part of what makes her so successful.

HOLLY NORTON, PHD ~ State Archaeologist & Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer, History Colorado, Denver, CO

I managed Martina’s work as our contracted grant writer at Impact on Education from 2018-2020. She helped us secure numerous grants, managing the application and reporting processes and drafting and assembling all the needed content. Martina is very responsive and professional, and she has a big heart for the work on nonprofit organizations. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and would recommend her for anyone needing a strong writer/communicator on their team.

ALLISON BILLINGS ~  Executive Director, Impact on Education, Louisville, CO 

Martina writes clearly, takes initiative and meets deadlines. Her background is in more academic writing, but she adapted quickly to writing in the journalistic style we use in our newspaper. She has shown herself to be flexible and able to write knowledgeably in a variety of subject areas. She accepts edits and suggestions and works collaboratively to have the best product.
