Meet Our Team

OVID Solutions is a woman-owned and operated consulting firm that specializes in helping communities plan for the future and secure dollars to implement large-scale visions. We assist organizations with initiatives from economic development to environmental protection and help implement major infrastructure projects. We seek to better the lives of others, be a part of something bigger and make a positive impact. We pride ourselves on:

  • Specializing in working with small communities that without support may never see these opportunities.
  • Getting to know an organization deeply so we can effectively tell their story.
  • Becoming a part of the organization’s team and building relationships with staff.
  • Coaching organizations to be the face of interactions with funding agencies to grow their internal capacity.

Whether it’s a small town looking to grow or a large city with plans for transformation, we promise to love a community like it is our own home.
