“I cannot imagine creating the strategic plan that we did without Saphira Baker’s guidance and professionalism. She welcomed our desire to have the planning process be a collaborative project between both Board and staff members. Saphira was able to balance the many strong and at times disparate ideas and directions into a harmonious final product.

Although our work to develop our plan is complete, Saphira continues to help troubleshoot and think about challenges of plan implementation. This is evidence of how much she cares not only about her work, but also about her clients.”

Matthew Gibson, Executive Director, Virginia Humanities

“Simply put, our goals were surpassed. We could not imagine at the outset the incredible value Communitas Consulting would add to the Equity + Health Fellowship process. RMHF would not be nearly at the place it is now without the engagement.

Five stars in everything. Saphira’s very thoughtful, responsive, always on the mark, direct, and quite remarkable. Among her many gifts, she’s an extraordinarily skilled facilitator with a very open heart and mind that makes great work possible.”

Mark D. Constantine PhD, President and CEO, Richmond Memorial Health Foundation (RMHF)
