Katrina has been developing successful fundraiser recognition programs for organizations like the American Lung Association, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Special Olympics, and the Alzheimer’s Association since 1989, when she founded Turnkey. Her client’s successes and her dedication to research have made her a sought-after speaker, presenting at national conferences for Blackbaud, Peer to Peer Professional Forum, Nonprofit Pro P2P and her clients’ national meetings, to name a few. Katrina also regularly shares her wit and business experiences on NonProfit PRO as a blogger on “Peeling the Onion.” When not writing or researching, Katrina likes to make things – furniture from reclaimed wood, new gardens, food with no recipe. Katrina’s favorite Saturday is spent cleaning out the garage, mowing the grass, making something new, all while listening to loud music by now-deceased black women, throwing in a few sets on the weight bench off and on, then collapsing on the couch with her husband Otis to gang-watch new Netflix series whilst drinking sauvignon blanc. Katrina grew up on a Virginia beef cattle and tobacco farm with her three brothers. She is accordingly skilled in hand to hand combat and witty repartee – skills gained at the expense of her brothers. Katrina’s claim to fame is having made it to the “American Gladiator” Richmond competition as a finalist in her late 20’s, progressing in the competition until a strangely large blonde woman knocked her off a pedestal with an oversized pain-inducing Q-tip. Katrina’s mantra for life is “Be nice. Do good. Embrace embarrassment.” Clearly she’s got #3 down.

Jo Anne has spent her entire career selling solutions and services to National and International Organizations. After receiving a BS in Computer Science from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Jo Anne moved to New York City with a job in the computer industry selling to National Accounts. She then transitioned into the Computer Aided Design Field selling complex tools and services for designing integrated circuits. She then transitioned again to a company that provided supply chain management services to design and produce integrated circuits for our clients. One well known product was the chip for an early Apple IPod. Jo Anne developed the sales organization for that company in Europe and Israel which afforded her extensive travel across the region. Jo Anne moved to Virginia 4 years ago looking for a lifestyle change. This desire ultimately led her to Turnkey where she found her talents for selling complex services could dramatically impact the results of the organization. And to top it off, she is delighted to also help those in need in the process! Outside of Turnkey, Jo Anne enjoys living in downtown Richmond, exploring the history and trying new restaurants. She also loves to travel to New York City to visit her daughter. And she is always looking for an opportunity to go sailing.

Just as Disney has Tinkerbell, Turnkey has Allison, the certificate fairy. She has an extensive background in client care, hospitality, and office and data management. At Turnkey, Allison uses a bit more than faith, trust, and pixie dust to turn our non-profits client’s data into gifts of thanks for their hard-working fundraisers.
