 "The Pescadero Foundation has called on Lois to lead us through two challenging town-wide planning processes. Her guidance was essential. With her help, both projects were not only successful, but instrumental in bringing our small rural community together in ways none of us knew were possible. Community organizing is difficult work, and Lois brings joy, love and expertise to it, along with always being there doing whatever it takes to get the job done."

~Lynne Bowman, Founder of the Pescadero Foundation and Pescadero School Board member
