Chelsea Wilkerson

CEO, Girl Scouts of Tropical Florida

"Carla guided Girl Scouts of Tropical Florida’s board and staff through a strategic plan - in the middle of a global pandemic and at a time of extreme social change. Our board and staff brought great energy and enthusiasm to the process; Carla did a phenomenal job of channeling it all, synthesizing, and bringing us to a common vision and understanding of our near future goals.  Feedback from board members has been positive, and we already launched our implementation phase. The ease of moving into implementation speaks to the strength of the plan Carla facilitated."


Jason Rzepka

President and Founder, WRIT LARGE

"Sol Picon is a force of nature.  When I met her, I had several leading American companies committed to join large-scale virtual and in-person job fairs happening in Miami just 5 weeks later...and basically no way to pull them off.  Sol rode in on a white stallion and not only helped me deliver one of the events I'm most proud of from my career, but she took it to heights I didn't think possible.  We went from a few non-profit partners to over 60 basically overnight.  As a result, we had thousands of the most in-need young people in Miami participate, with many beginning their careers.  And we had some of the highest exhibitor satisfaction and NPS scores of any event I've done with Schultz Family Foundation.  If you have a chance to work with Sol, the answer is yes."


Jacquie O’Malley

Vice President, Baptist Health South Florida Foundation

Former Group Vice President, Development, United Way of Miami-Dade

"Passionate. Strategic. Data Driven. As my colleague for over 6 years, Carla Crossno combined these qualities with her experience in fundraising to be a business leader who consistently delivered results. Her ability to listen, build consensus and manage a process while also being highly creative, energetic, and collaborative makes her an excellent marketing professional who can transform an organization and lead positive change."


Mark Cole

Vice President Advancement, Miami Dade College

Executive Director, Miami Dade College Foundation 

"We hired Carla Crossno to write a strategic marketing and communications plan for Miami Dade College Foundation. We got so much more than a plan. We got a partner and a champion. Beyond the vision and passion that Carla brings to her work, there is her ability to “get the important work done first”. Carla assembled a team of MVP’s who became an invested part of the MDC family and produced excellent work. Carla brought her considerable skills as a CEO, COO, Executive Coach, Leader and Team Builder to Miami Dade College Foundation and we benefited greatly. Carla also brought her enormous heart and tremendous passion for philanthropy. I believe this is the “secret sauce” that makes working with Carla so very special."


Yeri Yun

Communications Manager , Schultz Family Foundation

"I had the privilege of working with Sol on an innovative youth-focused hiring day in Miami. Her energy, passion, and can-do attitude was palpable from the start. And throughout the project, she was an absolute treasure. She can strategize at the highest levels, as well as roll up her sleeves for the nitty gritty details. She is a kind and genuine connector of people, and I would work with her again in a heartbeat."


Leopoldo (Polo) Coronado

Former Executive Director, Year Up South Florida

"I truly enjoy joining forces with Sol because I know that if she is involved, we will accomplish our goals. Every time we have worked together, I have learned something, delivered great results, and had fun in the process. Together, we were able to support United Way of Miami Dade's Early Education International initiative, paving the way for Miami corporations and all 13 United Ways in Latin America to collaborate.  I appreciated her assistance in organizing leadership events for Year Up South Florida. And, when she called me to be part of the Miami Youth Hiring Days initiative (Schultz Family Foundation), I did not have to think it twice, because I was certain we were going to impact many young lives in a positive way. I can’t wait to hear what we will do next!"
