Description Of Service Provided: This is my employer, for whom I am the Grants & Development Director. I have worked for OCDD for a number of years but began grant work with them in 2005 as a project director responsible for administering a federal grant program. Since then, I have also written for over $38 million in project awards. I have never had an application rejected/denied. I have had to make revisions to one and submit in a second round.

Description Of Service Provided: $215,000 award for Person Centered Planning Implementation grant (2007-2010). From what I understand, this grant is having a lot of success. I was very excited about this award because I knew absolutely nothing about the topic I wrote about going in and composed the application in just a few days. In the end, we put together a great proposal that was awarded.
