"Nat knows Summer and Auxiliary Services in independent schools like no one else. He is a true expert, with an incredible network and decades of hands on experience as a leader in the field, and a talented recruiter and consultant. He's also a total professional, with the highest integrity. Nat helped us recruit a top notch leader for our summer and  auxiliary programs, and develop a business plan that clarified longstanding strategic and operational questions.  He made a huge difference for us, and was a true pleasure to work with."
