Ms. Champney is an excellent leader who works extremely well with all stakeholders associated with our field. Personal observations have allowed me to state that Ms. Champney has excellent communication skills thru which she always sees the person she is communicating with and actively listens. She utilizes strong collaborative approaches and has a deep foundational belief in both self-directed and supported decision-making models.
If you or your organization are seeking consulting services regarding strategic planning, self-directed services, supported decision making, working with value in a Medicaid system, or if you seek to develop more collaborative opportunities for input choose Champney Consulting.
In 2017, Frontier Community Services (FCS) focused on refining person-directed services. In order to move in this philosophical direction we needed to examine our practices and systems from service notes to job descriptions. Kim Champney Consulting came alongside FCS leadership and not only served as a wealth of knowledge in the field of developmental disabilities but as a champion of encouragement.
She did behind the scene research, provided telephonic trainings, plan of care goal feedback and provided sample documents. The enormous support provided by Kim helped excel the agency’s mission toward person- directed services. I strongly endorse Champney Consulting for any DD service provider wanting to fully implement the statewide DD vision.

Kim simultaneously holds the big picture vision while understanding the pieces required to make it all work. She is a talented facilitator, bringing out the best in individuals, to serve the greater good. Kim has been a tremendous asset to our organization in developing our team and realizing our goals.
Kim Champney conducted our strategic planning retreat-- our first in over a decade! Kim's approach was thorough and she asked the right questions. The result was a strategic plan with an improved mission statement. Essentially, the process honed our board's focus, so our nonprofit's journey continues with renewed energy-- thank you, Kim!

Alaska is so fortunate to have Kim Champney as a consultant. She has an amazing depth of knowledge of the DD system from her 18 years in the field. That knowledge is coupled with Kim's outstanding social skills that include and support humans of all abilities.
But it is her deep wisdom and ability to see the connections and the possibilities with her effervescent and ever positive attitude that define her. It is always a joy to have the good fortune to spend time with her.
We contracted with Kim to help our Agency in the development of a Vision that aligned with our Mission, to guide us toward an expansive future while maintaining our tight-knit values. We came away with a Vision that truly reflects the Heart and DNA of how we move in the world as an Agency.
Kim has years of experience working in the disabilities field, which fosters the connection with staff at every level as she has truly walked in our shoes and understands the joys and challenges we encounter each day. But what really sets Kim apart is her Vision – not just for her company, but a collective Shared Vision for all people, all providers, and all families who are or work with people with disabilities.
Kim Champney is truly a Champion Consultant. Her expertise goes far beyond what she can “do,” it’s truly “who” she is: a Leader, a Teacher, and an Advocate.
