Yes Plan Do is a nano-sized operation scalable to meet the needs of my clients. I can draft a dream team to go from idea to implementation or I can offer a cost effective solution to meet a specific need on a larger team.
I'm passionate about building sustainable and resilient communities. Why? Because people are happier, healthier and more connected when they solve problems and take action together.
