TESTIMONIALS

ROY SCHELLER

 EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR EMERITUS

HOPE Community Resources Inc.

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 Champney makes things happen! Champney Consulting provided project management for a couple projects at the UAA Center for Human Development. She delivered quality products on time. I have also had the pleasure of participating in meetings that Kim facilitated. She is an engaging professional with excellent facilitation and communication skills. Kim is a collaborator, a visionary, a great listener, and a strong advocate. Most importantly, she has great passion for her work. I highly recommend Champney Consulting.

Kim has assisted our agency in strategic planning and brought a wealth of information and research to the planning process. Kim uses a fun interactive participatory approach and is an excellent facilitator, teacher, educator and leader.  In addition, Kim is a very smart, talented, professional and fun consultant to work with. I strongly endorse Champney Consulting for any service provider wanting to explore assistance with strategic planning.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Alaska Association on Developmental Disabilities

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.

Kim Champney has mad skills as a facilitator.  Thanks to her facilitation our board and staff were comfortable and engaged and left our strategic planning retreat energized and inspired.  Everyone was so impressed at how much ground we covered in a short time, all the while having so much fun together.  Kim launched us with such positive momentum that two years later we were amazed at how much of our action plan we accomplished.  We also appreciated how well prepared she was and her quick turnaround on synthesizing and reporting the notes.

Kim Champney Consulting has provided a wide range of professional services to TIDES LLC, which are always presented with professionalism, flexibility, and expertise. Kim’s years of experience working in the IDD field along with her collaboration with many local and state partners brings greater depth to the services provided. From Leadership Development, to Organizational Development, to 1:1 Coaching, Kim Champney Consulting has contributed to TIDES greatly. Thank you.
