“We are RELM…a proud studio approaching three years old that is unified. That is the greatest gift of our work with Ann. If you allow her to work across all levels within your organization, you will find outcomes that lead to empowerment, efficiencies, and enthusiasm. RELM cannot recommend her expertise more highly.”

“Ann was amazing. Her amenable nature comfortably brought everyone to the table to define, ‘the RELM way,’ in a spirit that was introspective, collaborative, and useful. She introduced our studio to the concept of energy units, asking us to define time to value ratios. We streamlined several rote tasks to ensure we could spend more time conceptualizing, creating moments of wonder.”

Dr. Allen Estes

“Ann facilitated the creation of a vision for the Cal Poly architectural engineering program. The faculty is a healthy mix of researchers and seasoned practitioners where consensus is very difficult to attain. Undaunted, she interviewed each member to understand the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and roadblocks facing the department and successfully orchestrated our reaching a vision.”
