What people are saying about Nancy

“Nancy’s energetic advocacy and deep understanding of policy making (and sausage making!) is matched only by her gracious spirit and dedication to the work at hand.  I’ve been with her through ups and downs and there always seems to be a way to move forward.  She is a pleasure to work with and would be an asset to any team.”

– Carter MacNichol, Managing Partner Emeritus, Sheils Obletz Johnsen
Chair, Oregon for Climate Action
Treasurer, Oregon Business for Climate

“Nancy listens, learns, and builds trust with partners. She’s not afraid to take on tough problems and makes difficult concepts easy to understand. We wouldn’t be where we are today without her extensive resources and expertise.”

-Dylan Kruse, Sustainable Northwest
Western Juniper Alliance Program

“I’d walk off a cliff for Nancy. She is jumbo smart, whip quick, passionate, and vastly networked. She’s a big-picture thinker who gets things done: a rare combination. She’s articulate, funny, and not likely to color within the lines.”

– Amy Keiter, Director, External Communications, Comcast

“Hamilton brings a strong track record rallying diverse interest groups in support of shared goals. And she’s fun to work with.”

– Former Portland Mayor Sam Adams

“Nancy partnered with us on a challenging project, helping us to launch the book we’d written entitled, “ Help is Here: When someone you love has dementia.” She gave us terrific ideas and direction. She is easy to work with, fun, and very professional. We wouldn’t be where we are now without her counsel in those early days. The video she and her team produced for us is also first-rate and gets across our message powerfully. We are so grateful to her!”

– Dr. Marian Hodges, Co-Author, Help is Here
Regional Medical Director for Geriatrics, Providence Oregon
Anne P. Hill JD, Co-Author, Help is Here

“If you want some really creative, professional, and insightful help, Nancy Hamilton Consulting is the right choice…I gave Nancy very little time in which to produce a marketing video detailing the digital infrastructure in the City of Hillsboro. She and her team jumped in and organized everything – scripts, filming and editing – and had a finished product in only 2 weeks! And it is wonderful – right on target for what was needed. Nancy has an innate ability to understand marketing and, more importantly for me, economic development, in order to know what drives business decisions and what information was needed to help make the case that Hillsboro is a great place to do business.”

– Sarah Garrison, Former Economic Development Manager
City of Hillsboro, Oregon

“I can’t think of a person I have met throughout my career that better demonstrates a wonderful complement of grit and grace. Nancy Hamilton has an amazing ability to inspire, educate and lead. She humbly redefines public service with her passionate ‘don’t-take-no-for-an-answer’ determination. I have seen firsthand her ability to convince seasoned skeptics, and witnessed over and over as she has impressed upon young people their responsibility to change the world. I feel very fortunate to have her as a colleague, and to call her my friend.”

– Traci Rose, Former VP of Community Relations, Portland Trail Blazers
Chief Advancement Officer, Boys & Girls Clubs Portland Metro

“Nancy is creative, smart, funny and great to work with.  When we have projects that are driven by complex community dynamics, Nancy is our “go-to” expert.  She has an uncanny political ear and eye, and consistently offers up advice and strategies for Bora that makes our stakeholder engagement work immeasurably more successful. Our Lincoln High Master Plan process is the third project we’ve hired Nancy on, and we look forward to many more. Nancy has earned our confidence and has our highest recommendation.”

– Christopher Linn AIA, Principal
BORA Architects

“Nancy is a smart, tireless, and passionate advocate, not to mention a wise counselor. She would be a great asset for any organization or initiative.”

– Walter Van Valkenburg, Partner, Stoel Rives LLP
Former Chair, Oregon Business Development Commission

“Nancy has never shied away from a challenge. She’s got an impressive history as a catalyst for change across a broad spectrum of issues and programs.”

– Chip Terhune, Former Chief of Staff
Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski

“I’m absolutely blown away and so very proud of the video you produced for us. You have done phenomenal work.  I forwarded this to one of the consultants who worked on most of these projects, and it brought her to tears.  I think it is just awesome.  Love, love, love it. Thank you so much.”

– Kristin Retherford, Former President
Association of Oregon Renewal Agencies

“Nancy is a trifecta of scary-smart, incredibly honest, and passionately committed to what she cares about, including championing those of us lucky enough to be in her orbit of family and friends. And she’s really, really funny – a vastly under appreciated trait which comes in handy in boring meetings, hostile teenager negotiations and endlessly long road trips.”

– Kate Sokoloff, Principal, Sokoloff Creative
Creator of the LiveWire Radio Show and Low Bar Chorale
