“I met Cindy approximately two years ago while attending a USDA Rural Development meeting.  I was there gathering information about building a Bio Diesel plant.  There were several grant writers attending that meeting, however Cindy impressed me the most.  Eventually our company decided to build a Bio Diesel plant and hired Cindy as our grant writer.  To date she has written two grant applications for our company, both of which were awarded.  In working with Cindy, I found her to be very knowledgeable, well informed, well known in her industry and dedicated to her work.  In addition to Cindy writing our grants, we hired her as a consultant for our company, because of her knowledge of the Bio Diesel and Ethanol industry.  I am highly recommending Cindy Thyfault to anyone in need of her services.”
