What Clients Say

“Nichole ran a coordinated campaign for me with Caroline Skidmore that efficiently used shared resources and kept our costs down. Running against a well funded incumbent, Nichole’s expertise was critical to my campaign by helping me broaden my skills in fundraising and communication, which spanned from debate prep to securing broadcast radio and TV commercials. Because of her strategy, optimism, steady guidance, and impeccable organization, my campaign ran smoothly, and most importantly, successful!”
Shimiko Montgomery
Bend-La Pine School Board
“Campaigns are about relationships. As a candidate, you want a campaign manager who knows how to get things done and is respected in the community. I’ve been fortunate to work with Nichole in my 2018 campaign for Congress - where we had the biggest vote swing in the country - and in my 2020 campaign. In the past few years, the number of progressive and community-minded leaders elected in Central Oregon have substantially increased. Nichole helped make that happen. She’s the person that people turn to for advice.”
Jamie McLeod-Skinner
U.S. Congressional candidate
“Nichole’s breadth of knowledge regarding canvassing, targeting voters, media focus, budgets and fundraising made the difference between a win and a loss! She pushed me when I needed it while also respecting my life constraints (campaigning during COVID). She kept me on task, she watched our budget closely, she worked tirelessly to increase our reach and she believed in and encouraged me every step of the way. Ultimately delivering a win.”
Megan Perkins
