Amanda has been working with me for over a year to create a comprehensive grant strategy to increase the grant submission output and awards for my lab. Working with Amanda has really boosted the quality and quantity of my grant submissions.  I’ve appreciated Amanda’s contributions at all stages in the grant writing process from her valuable insights into identifying and strategizing funding opportunities to crafting competitive proposals.  She is professional, efficient, and effective, and a joy to work with!

“We hired Amanda to help guide us in our first SBIR proposal for NIH, and she came in, reviewed our project and helped get the project over the finish line. We started talking with her with just a few weeks left before submittal, and she worked closely with multiple team members to help them focus on key tasks, review and edit documents we needed, and help with our overall approach to the grant submission. She was available quickly when we needed her, responded to calls and emails, and was with us around the clock for the last few days as the deadline approached. We couldn’t have done this without her – we highly recommend Amanda and will definitely work with her again in the future without hesitation.”


“Amanda helped us put together an SBIR contract solicitation proposal on very short notice. She was highly communicative, knowledgable and flexible both with her schedule and her approach, which was perfect for us as we were changing things up until the last minute. We greatly enjoyed working with Amanda and intend to use her expertise again in the future on similar projects.”


“Great editing skills! Her edits and overall contributions to our project helped our team tremendously with submitting an NIH proposal.”

“How can I put into words how absolutely excellent Amanda is? She is thoughtful, diligent, intelligent, timely and simply a pleasure to work with. Her grant writing skills were very impressive. She saved my grant and I will be forever thankful. I highly recommend Amanda as she is truly superb.”

I am so grateful to Amanda for her help with the NIH grant she helped us submit. This was a large, multi-site program project grant. Amanda was instrumental in three critical ways. First, she read all the research components and provided important feedback on its content and adherence to the RFA guidelines. Second, she kept track of all the different grant components and made sure the investigators had the latest versions of each document. Third, she coordinated the submission with all the different investigators and their fund managers at 3 different institutions in a seamless manner.  I could not have submitted the grant without Amanda’s help. I recommend her whole heartedly!

I was in a grant-related emergency. Amanda was a godsend. She offered her services quickly, we wrote three grants together in a short time. She brought professionalism, quick editing, and excellence to what we did together. She was wonderful to work with interpersonally as well. Many thanks for a job well done.”

Dr. Amy D. Waterman, UCLA
Amanda was great to work with. She understood what was needed and even gave some great suggestions. She was very knowledgeable about film grant writing which was exactly what I needed, and put in more than expected. I would definitely utilize her again if need be as well as recommend her.
