“Simply put, Annie can do anything. She really understands topics and sticks to messages. She has exceptional follow through, amazing organizational skills and really keeps the trains running on time. She has an engaging personality and unmatched people skills. Annie has innovative ideas, but can also run with implementation of a pre-set plan. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.”

Andrew DeChellis

Communication Specialist, University of Miami

“As the Media Relations Liaison for the Marine Life Protection Act Initiative, SOS developed a communications plan to reach a broad audience for participation in our public process. This included the use of social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. The SOS team identified a strategy that was both innovative and realistic to communicate the purpose of the ocean planning process and the importance of public participation to its success. We owe a great deal of our success to Annie’s talent and positive approach.”

Project Management

“Kim Mcintyre is a remarkable human being, able to balance competing demands successfully, able to take on multiple challenges and not drop one, able to organize complex projects and not antagonize. In all the work we did together, from managing the UCSD Environment and Sustainability Initiative to UCSD’s Venice gates project to UCSD’s first online course, there was not one lapse of excellence.”

Charles Kennel

Director Emeritus, Vice-Chancellor, and Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego

“My experience working with Kim over the past few years has been in the context of coordinating the West Coast Governors Alliance and launching the new West Coast Ocean Partnership. These are both tremendous efforts requiring skill and tact to organize a large, varied group of people who all have very busy schedules and myriad responsibilities. From scheduling and leading conference calls to drafting strategic documents to organizing 150-person summits, Kim keeps these entities moving forward and achieving progress on their goals. On top of her significant professional skills and accomplishments, Kim is a pleasure to work with and be around. Her excellent coordination has contributed markedly to ocean health improvement efforts on the West Coast.”
