Some of the things people say about Jone Bosworth:
"Jone is both a visionary and get-things-done leader." Jada Rupley, Governor's Early Learning System Director, State of Oregon
"I've had the opportunity of working with Jone in two capacities -- one as a consultant to her when she was an agency head In Washington State government, the other with her serving as consultant to me on a project. I found her to be one of the most dynamic and self-directed agency heads I've worked with in government; she knew her subject, she knew what she wanted to accomplish, but most of all she knew how to make things happen and did so -- a rare trait. As a result, when I needed an expert on children services for a project we were working on several years later, I called Jone. I was not disappointed; her subject-matter knowledge was far deeper than I even had expected, and her level of effort, quality of work, and turnaround were exceptional. I think anyone would be lucky to work with, or for, Jone." Eric Schnurer, CEO Public Works, LLC
