Our Network of Professionals

We recognize that referrals are the lifeblood of any small business. Therefore, one of our ongoing goals is to recognize other local businesses with whom we collaborate and have great respect.

These referrals are not offered lightly. We do our homework to ensure each of the businesses we recommend will provide exceptional service and the same quality of care we strive to provide to our clientele.

Thank you for your consideration of these outstanding local businesses.

She has been our business consultant for the past 6+ years. She facilitates our yearly business retreats and has helped us as a company and individuals establish short and long term strategies and goals. Believe me when I say getting 6 personal trainers to agree on something and plan long term can prove challenging to say the least. We could not have grown without her insight and guidance.

She focuses her work on the human dimensions of managing change and transition as well as coaching organizational leaders to identify and reach their goals. She can be reached at judy@judyfutch.com.
