Kris has been providing federal grant proposal support services and project management to clients for over 17 years through her independent consulting firm. She specializes in SBIR/STTR preparations and submissions and has worked on over 250 proposals just in the last 10 years. Her proposals have been submitted to all 11 participating federal agencies, for both contract and grant solicitations, Omnibus and special solicitations, SBIR and STTR programs, and Phase I, Phase II and additional Phase programs (FastTrack, Phase IIB, etc.). Kris has prepared and managed large, multi-site clinical trial applications and has extensive knowledge of required registration and submission sites, ensuring complete and correct submissions. She has enjoyed extensive work with two major research universities (Indiana University and Purdue University), supporting over 65 submissions since 2010. By reading an average of 25 summary statements per year, Kris has developed an acute awareness of trends and themes among granting agencies and review panels, which helps in guiding her clients to the most appropriate grant opportunities. Her depth of experience in the grant writing field has allowed her to create a highly refined process that provides maximum efficiency and results in quality and competitive proposals. The things that Kris enjoys most about her work are the direct interactions with clients and a hands-on role on projects.
