Words from NLBG Consulting’s Principal, Nanda Guajardo:

I’m often called a Connector for my ability to bring together people, ideas, and resources. My colleagues also consider me a helper and motivator; someone who gets things done.

My professional background includes almost 20 years of experience leading outreach programs in the Pacific Northwest on a range of topics from recycling best practices in schools, to reducing the use of hazardous chemicals in the home, to minimizing community impacts as multiple government entities clean up a local Superfund site. I am a skilled project manager and public involvement professional.

I started NLBG Consulting in order to provide efficient, high-quality, flexible project management and public outreach services on local programs that make a difference. I specialize in forming highly-capable teams to get the job done. I thrive as an organized liaison; someone who truly listens to a neighborhood’s concerns and finds a collaborative pathway forward to meet program goals. As a mom to two youngish kids, organizing and creating a sustainable world for the next generations are parts of my daily life.

I look forward to connecting with you to help create healthy and sustainable communities for all!

Nanda manages with the 4E model:

Empathy | Efficiency
Engagement | Empowerment

Nanda, hands down, you are one of the best project managers I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
