Our district has had the opportunity to work with Lane Krumpos on several occasions from professional development of staff to overhauling and completely restructuring the suicide protocol and response system which in turn protects our entire community! Lane’s knowledge, expertise, and professionalism go above and beyond what is requested - making the learning experience motivating and meaningful. I would highly recommend Lane Krumpos to any project, training, restructuring, or collaboration where a quality, qualified professional with a myriad of skills and knowledge is needed.

I would describe working with Lane in two words, Energy and Transformational. Lane's energy and passion are contagious. There is no doubt Lane has a heart of service. It has been transformational for me to see how her passion and knowledge have impacted so many people in the communities we serve, and the colleagues, she works with every day.

Through the years, I’ve been the beneficiary of Lane’s thoughtful leadership as she improved our Crisis Response Team and facilitated local mental health partners through consensus-building conversations. Lane always guides our time with wisdom, clarity, passion, and a dash of humor. Lane has my highest respect, and I am deeply grateful for her expert collaboration. She brings the spark necessary to effect powerful, positive results- Lane is that one in a million person. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Tacoma Public Schools

Our district reached out seeking support and guidance in addressing our suicide prevention protocols. Having worked with Lane on professional development in the past we were familiar with her expertise, professionalism, and compassion. We were relieved and energized by her willingness to work with us and to take such a daunting task and make it a collaborative and smooth process.

Additionally, our school community lost a student to suicide during our work together. Lane addressed this with grace, compassion, and flexibility. Allowing us to channel our struggles into action through new policies and procedures. It is difficult to express the relief and confidence that I now feel after having documents and procedures developed with Lane's guidance. I look forward to working with Lane on future projects and endeavors in any capacity as I trust her abilities completely.
