Testimonials from team members, clients, colleagues, and leaders.

"Marcella, it has been a pleasure collaborating with and introducing you to our PMI Carolinas community.  I am confident that I can speak for our team when I say that we look forward to partnering with you again in the future."

"The Speaker (Marcella P. Kowalchuk) presented to the PMI Carolina North chapter a topic listed as 'Key Insights for Building PM Skills' that highlighted these talking points: Know your Knowledge, Know your Environment and Value Time.  


This interaction was a first for Marcella Kowalchuk Consulting Inc with the PMI Carolina organization and the speaker's presentation was informative, her interaction with the team was engaging, as this led to multiple back & forth communication activity with attendees.  The content was very helpful to the audience.


Ms. Kowalchuk, as an HR consultant, has a very insightful perspective on how PM's can reshape their thinking.  More importantly, the shared content was lively, enlightening and noteworthy for all PM's.  I would recommend her service to other PMI national chapters or other professional services groups."
