"Kim Fleming is a star go-to expert, my first choice consultant, first choice collaborator, first choice problem solver, first choice writer! I recommend her to colleagues regularly for the high quality of her work, her work ethic, and her outstanding collaborative style. Kim has inspired my own thinking, helping me to meet my goals and those of my colleagues."

"Kim Fleming is the consummate professional! Although highly knowledgeable in all areas discussed throughout the development of guidelines for this program/certification, Kim was never pretentious or overbearing. Rather, she developed relationships with colleagues that promoted successful interactions and discussions, thus resulting in positive collegial decisions. With her impressive knowledge and skills, she should be teaching us all how to get things done -- and done well!"
Certification Coordinator, Montgomery County Public Schools

"Kim's expertise in federal grant writing was invaluable to us in writing our Investing in Innovation application. Without Kim's knowledge of education reform best practices and federal government requirements, not to mention her willingness to be flexible and responsive on tight timelines, we would have been unable to complete nearly as strong a product as was ultimately submitted."
Executive Director, DC Public Education Fund
"Dr. Fleming's support...was invaluable in helping us meet all standards. Her meticulous attention to detail combined with her diplomatic way of communicating ensured that we could complete a thorough review report and still be speaking to each other at the end!"
Director, School of Education
"Not only is Kim a joy to work with, but her level of expertise in education issues is stellar. She is a critical thinker, a true professional, and her enthusiasm for what she is doing is contagious. Kim quickly comprehends the emotional 'valence' of a team and can get the job done because she works in a way that makes everyone feel like a valued contributor. I can't think of a better person for a job where being a team player is tantamount."

"Working with Kim Fleming was truly a joy. She provided an outstanding framework for the MITAC technology report and was extremely responsive to the myriad of feedback she received from Council members, helping the Council to create an ultime product of which we are all proud. Her work ethic and dedication to quality are admirable, and I would love to work with Kim again."

"There aren't many individuals with Kim's level of expertise who can help clients without intimidating them. Every time I worked with her, I never felt it necessary to hide my ignorance. Because Kim does such a good job of putting people at ease, her impact is that much greater!"
Mary Ann Bailey
Alternative Preparation Specialist

"Kim Fleming tackles each assignment with enthusiasm and competence."
"We hired Kim to help us submit a grant proposal under serious time pressure. We hired her for her expertise in the education field and in grant writing, but received much more...it was her leadership skills that gave our team structure and direction. We certainly would not have been able to produce the quality document that we did in the given time without Kim."
"What I can appreciate in working with Kim is her immediate attention to a request or question, whether it be to offer some advice, seek an answer, or offer some assistance. Knowing that she is listening and is ready to provide immediate support gives me a great feeling that 'I'm not in this alone'."
