Our Values

Our Values


Our strong reputations precede us.

You’re only as good as your reputation and ours is impeccable! You can trust us – we’re glad to give you references who can tell you about their positive experiences.


Nothing replaces experience.

As a community activist, non-profit leader, teacher, facilitator, consultant and entrepreneur, Gay brings a lifetime of experience and lessons learned to the challenges presented by each client. Over her years serving and working in the non-profit sector, she’s collected tools and resources that she shares with her clients.

Our entire team brings a wealth of experience and knowledge from many sectors.


Honesty and integrity are the foundation of our work.

Personally and professionally, the GDA team operates in alignment with our values. We’ll explain costs up front, and tell you if we feel you’d be better served by another consulting firm. When you work with us, we’ll let you know if we hit a roadblock or need more information.


Honesty and integrity are the foundation of our work.

No two organizations are the same.

We never use the same approach twice. Every client has unique needs and circumstances. Sure, we’ll build on the resources and tools we have – but we never use a cookie-cutter approach. We’ll listen to you – and do our best to meet your budget, timelines and desired results.

Ingenuity & Innovation

We find creative new ways to solve problems.

If you have a challenge that seems insurmountable, bring it to the GDA team! We’re objective, and come with distinctly different perspectives. We’ll gather our collective energies to create solutions you wouldn’t come up with on your own.
