“Mary Beth has consulted for Parent Network for over a decade and has always delivered what we needed. She is often my go-to person when I need outside expertise. We have used Mary Beth to develop programs, design and deliver training, facilitate meetings, and provide evaluation and coaching to program providers. She listens for what we need, works collaboratively with us, and cares about our success. That’s why I just hired her for another project!”
