Steps to End Domestic Violence (Non-profit with heavy state and grant funding)
“I served as the interim executive director of Steps to End Domestic Violence between November 18, 2019, and May 29, 2020. Shortly after I stepped into the role I met with Bonnie and her team to discuss a contract for outsourcing our financial services. Her team responding immediately – in particular, Bonnie and Jaime. They were instrumental in strengthening our financial systems. Jaime was incredibly patient with me as I reached out almost daily with questions. They continue to support us and remain a reliable partner as we prepare for a new fiscal year in the wake of the pandemic. I have no reservations in recommending Batchelder Associates.”
