Consultants for Children
With the help of her advisor, Germaine is in a better position to provide her high-level service to hundreds more families in need, and is hiring and creating good jobs.
Germaine Seufert is an entrepreneur and business owner at Consultants for Children located in Lakewood, Colorado. Consultants for Children is a company striving to meet the varying needs of children with autism and other developmental disabilities, and their families. For years, Germaine has worked extremely hard to become a Medicare provider, and was finally able to become one because of her persistence. As a result of becoming a certified Medicare provider, Germaine was able to get a contract with Kaiser, which meant that Consultants for Children would need to grow exponentially – and quickly. Germaine approached Pacific Community Ventures because she needed help with large scale hiring, creating health insurance packets, and understanding how to develop relocation packages for future employees. She also needed help with improving operations and marketing.
With the needs of Germaine in mind, BusinessAdvising.org was able to match Consultants for Children with Maureen Dunne. Maureen lives in California and is the Founder and CEO of UQlife, a connected games platform that brings together players, families and coaches for learning, support, and encouragement. Maureen has strengths in coaching, creative problem solving, and working with small businesses. Maureen was an ideal advisor for Germaine because she coincidentally has a PHD in cognitive sciences with an emphasis on autism and childhood development.
Initially Maureen and Germaine met remotely to work on the issues facing Consultants for Children. The connection was so strong that Maureen traveled from California to Colorado to meet with Germaine and her staff and work on pressing issues. Together the pair was able to ensure the large scale hiring process for Consultants for Children was efficient, and were also able to improve operations and marketing for the organization. With the help of her advisor, Germaine is in a better position to provide her high-level service to hundreds more families in need, and is hiring and creating good jobs. That’s good for business and everyone involved!
