Buffalo String Works began working with Nikki and City of Light at a crucial moment of transition for our organization and we have been grateful for Nikki's continued guidance. While our partnership began with strategic planning, her compassion and expertise have been essential as we negotiate our transition from a startup organization to a growing nonprofit. We highly recommend the City of Light team and we know that anyone who has the opportunity to work with Nikki will be in the best hands!

The team at City light helped Ashtanga Yoga Buffalo to establish true core values. From that clarity, I was able to focus on our values as a community, growing us from the heart space and soul of our yoga school. I’m eternally grateful for their amazing energy and support.

City of Light has all the technical skills we need, but what makes them stand out is that they listen. They keep us focused, volunteer ideas, and then help us get it done.

The City of Light team have been instrumental in our growth since our inception. Today, our story is known nationwide because of our work in holding Tonawanda Coke accountable for their environmental crimes. A big shout out to CLC for helping us with organizational support when we were busy pounding the pavement and rallying our community to stop this company's pollution once and for all.

Nikki helped us define our mission, vision, and core values. Her team supported us in achieving nonprofit status by reviewing our material and helping us file the right forms at the right times. Walking through that first step has better defined who we are and what we want to achieve. This effort is stronger because of it and we are grateful for City of Light Consulting's continued guidance.

Working with City of Light has been great! Nikki and her team helped me with a new logo, branding and the set up of a new website. They helped me get to where I can update my website easily by myself. They were integral in our rebranding process.

City of Light Consulting is not only the most effective, efficient, timely, helpful and highly skilled team, but they are also nurturing, clear seeing and encouraging. This rare bundle of traits sets them apart from any other consulting firm out there. We would not be where we are, with the incredible feedback we receive about our business, without them.

Nikki is an extraordinary writer. She is very professional with such a sweet warm hearted spirit. Nikki understood the vision for Giuliana's Playroom and brought it to life. When we had our first meeting I threw a lot at her. I needed a better website, a logo, letterhead, and most importantly grants. I absolutely love the website and the whole brand.

Nikki has a cheerful disposition and a very positive attitude which are both essential qualities when assisting her client to determine where they want to go and what they are trying to achieve. She has a beautiful skill in questioning established norms that often are not working while encouraging to seek greater things. She has really helped us on the way to becoming what we truly can be.
