I hired Hillcrest to hold together a ton of important components of our operations work and revenue tracking systems when we had key staff turnover. Brigid and her team not only kept us afloat but helped us build new and better systems along the way. And, frankly, their support helped me sleep at night - it was such a relief seeing that this was handled by a really capable group of people who are experts. They oversaw some of our most sensitive, detailed operational work, even involving complex and ongoing communication with our biggest funder, so the stakes were high; Brigid's team far exceeded anything I could have hoped for and I would hire them again, in a second.

Just when we needed project management support, we were fortunate that Hillcrest Strategies was accepting clients. Brigid took over an important, highly detailed project that needed a trusted progressive organizer and administrator. Brigid balanced our needs with ensuring the highest level of attention and thoughtfulness with the project partners. I am so grateful for her positivity and ability to keep the project moving. She really understood how to balance operationalizing the project and kept teamwork and people at the heart of the work.

Brigid has helped me take multiple organizations to scale in Texas. I came to her with big ideas of how I wanted to transform power in this state, and she developed the internal infrastructure, fundraising plans, and organizational operations to make us successful. Her strategic mindset, lead from behind leadership style, and business acumen make her a valuable ally in the struggle for an equitable future.

I have worked with Brigid for the better part of the past decade, during the capital campaign to secure the building for Workers Defense Project, and in the establishment of Jolt Action. She is dedicated, energetic and tireless in her activities. Brigid has an innate sense of the “big picture” and never loses sight of mission and goals. At the same time, she pays great attention to detail and appreciates the dynamic aspects of organizations and the environments in which they operate.
