Client Testimonials

“Living by example Grace-Anne has helped Evergreen Life Services plan, develop and implement cultural arts programs in many of our Texas locations. Her combination of fine arts knowledge and service delivery systems for persons with disabilities is the reason why these programs have been set up for success. Grace-Anne also applies her creative and skillful grant writing to each application she submits. Her attention to detail, timeliness, and professionalism is why I keep contracting with her year after year, even when I have changed jobs, I have brought Grace into my new projects because Grace gets results. Grace is just so good at everything she has the “Midas” touch!”

Sue Buchholtz, MBA

“Grace-Anne’s expertise helped ECHO¬†tremendously. With her assistance, in one year we more than tripled the amount we were receiving through grant funding. Grace-Anne helped ECHO get to the next level! Now that I am the Executive Director of the SPCA in Pinellas County, Florida, I plan to work with Arts In Action again!

Stacey Efaw
Former Executive Director of ECHO

“Grace has an impeccable work ethic and is excellent at researching grants and also grant writing! She has helped our organization grow, but more importantly, she has guided us in creating a unique Measurement Matrix that is assuring our programs are implemented successfully and upheld with fidelity.”

Ian Welsch
Founder and CEO

“Working with Grace-Anne has taught me both the practical and finite aspects of engaging the community in a mutually beneficial way. Grace-Anne shared all her knowledge from years of creating, growing, and running an impactful and prosperous non profit in the Tampa Bay area. Specifically, she taught me how to get the word out about my program and to use what you’ve got by tapping into resources. Her innovation, enthusiasm, and passion are contagious and matched only by her ability to set ideas into motion! Grace-Anne is fierce, friendly, and unforgettable, which are essential when advocating for a program that changes the lives of youth who are often left out of the postsecondary and employment conversation.

If she made this much of an impact on Project 10 STING RAY in just one summer, just imagine what Grace-Anne could bring to your organization. If any one person can make a difference in your community or your organization, it is Grace-Anne Alfiero!”

Christy Hallas

“I was told by one of my very first employers, if you get the chance to meet with certain people you clear your schedule and you make it happen.” I’m telling each of you Grace is one of those people! If you take one meeting this year it’s gotta be with Grace. Working with Grace has been one of the biggest blessings and privileges in my life. Grace is not only a consultant; she is a mentor and friend. Her talent and guidance has empowered me to push the envelope to do things I thought and was told by others I couldn’t do for another ten years into my career. I’m living the life I want to live right now and it’s because of Grace and Arts In Action Consulting.”
