Kristen Berchtold is the owner of Momentum Fund Development and Communications, a consulting firm dedicated to helping non-profits share their message with their community and develop the resources that they need to achieve their mission.
Betchtold was really fortunate to work with a lot of really great mentors, and she kind of just learned on the job about how to raise funds.
"We're really very fortunate to live in a community that is very philanthropic and very giving and our message really seemed to resonate with folks," she said. "I believe that everybody in our community has an obligation to make it a better place so I'm really, really proud to have been given lots of opportunity to do that in my career and also in my volunteer life."
"What inspires me is basically the end result of my fundraising efforts. You raise funds and lots of good happens in the world."
