What our CARF consulting customers say:

“We truly consider Brenda Rohren an extension of our team.  Not only is she extremely knowledgeable on CARF standards but even more importantly, she is extremely organized, a great communicator, and a pleasure to work with.  No matter where you are in the accreditation process, Brenda is able to provide you the right guidance.  She provides clear timelines on her reviews as well as thorough responses with specific references to the CARF standards.  We often felt that we were the bottleneck in allowing her to proceed or helping us but she always handled all interactions with the utmost professionalism.  Overall, we could not have gotten through our CARF survey without her consultative services and would highly recommend Brenda to any organization looking for this type of support.”

“The consultant, Brenda Rohren, helped me so much during my first CARF survey at a new agency I was unfamiliar with.  She quickly got to work and immediately started sending me what she thought we needed for the review.  I honestly do not think I could’ve helped this company to get re-accredited without her help. I am glad she has a website that she was the first person that popped up on my Google search.  She does excellent work.”
