Dr. Vélez worked with my team to refine two program structures — a re-entry program and volunteer program. She focused on leveraging my organization’s existing strengths and the talents of my staff team. She also honored my team’s authentic client-centered approach and made sure to help us to measure and celebrate our program impact. Dr. Vélez is organized, prompt, and we work with her as if she was a member of our team, providing mutual feedback which was received well. It’s hard to find partners that are passionate about the work without having a big ego about it.
