As my Communications Director, Donelle Harder refined a varied and wide-ranging agenda into concise, effective messaging and demonstrated an innate understanding of issues that matter to Oklahomans. She’s a strategic mastermind
Ryan Jackson, Sr. Vice President of the National Mining Association
I had the privilege of working with Donelle when she was the Communications Director for Senator Inhofe’s Office as well as the US Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and the US Senate Armed Services Committee. She is as talented and thoughtful as she is versatile and able to not only respond with a plan to any challenge but implement that plan with effective precision. She will inspire your confidence; she is a persistent problem solver and you will find no one better able to help you.
former Secretary of Health and CEO of TMG Services Company
In the arena of public perception and messaging, Donelle is the keenest thinker I’ve worked with. When COVID-19 arrived in Oklahoma, she was the first person I called to help us communicate the crisis and navigate unknown, turbulent waters in a high-stakes environment. As a consultant, Donelle was a consensus builder and problem solver, qualities that allowed for the Governor’s Solution Task Force to be more nimble and confident in making difficult public policy decisions as information evolved.
