Changemaker Testimonial – Bob Dorshimer, Mile High Behavioral Health Care

Bob Dorshimer

We partnered with JVA to do our business and strategic planning, and we are on our third round of doing that with JVA because we continue to blaze through our plans and complete them early! Because JVA structures our documents so well, we continue to overachieve on our three- and five-year goals.
