I first met Julie Shematz, Founder & CEO of Beauty From Ashes, five years ago through a board member. We had a couple of meetings at which I shared thoughts and materials that I hoped would be helpful. When we met again, after several years, I learned that BFA activities had significantly expanded and that our early meetings had been of significant help. I am impressed with Mrs. Schmetz's enthusiasm, intellegence, high energy and devotion to this needed ministry. A programatic audit recently conducted by a state agency confirmed BFA's soundness. It is recognized beyond Florida and, in my opinion, could become a model in the field and leadership organization with national impact. Donald Miltner is the Founder & CEO of Distinguished Mentors & Associates LLC. DM&A is a management consulting firm initially incorporated in 1983 to provide strategic and management council primarily to non profit Boards and CEO's personally supported by a former managing director of McKinsey & Company. The relationship afforded me the opportunity to serve more than forty national and international ministries as well as foundations, corporate executives, philanthropists and projects and programs at The White House directly involving five US Presidents.
