"At a time when I felt lost in the CEQA vortex, MAINSPRING came through big for me so I could focus on my farm."

-Happy Day Farms

"Its been a true pleasure working with Chantal and Mainspring.  Chantal is an energetic, positive, highly effective communicator with a practical yet creative approach to problem-solving.  Her multidisciplinary background and broad knowledge base have proven invaluable time and time again.  She has become a trusted collaborator and I often draw upon her knowledge and expertise across a variety of subject matter."

"Chantal has an extraordinary gift for looking at a project holistically, executing the details and charting a path forward. She and Lia use their wide breath of knowledge and industry resources to truly become partners in helping to achieve the project goals."

-Fire Flower Farms

“The Mainspring team worked on a large project for us and they killed it. All of the calls and email requests were well thought out and timely. If we encountered an issue, they offered solutions. The cost projection was on budget and we completed the project before schedule. Highly recommend Mainspring!“

-Giving Tree Farm


Chantal’s willingness to dig deep into technical issues while keeping an eye on the big picture are critical skills in providing a comprehensive approach. Her willingness to ask specific questions in service of understanding how an issue that may be just outside of her considerable areas of expertise may impact or be impacted by the work in her wheel house are critical to to the successful collaborations she has engaged in. I have personally witnessed the skill, dedication, and concern for ensuring that all pieces of the puzzle fit together to compliment furtherance of each aspect of a project and to minimize the potential that positive outcomes in one arena do not come at the expense of competing compliance considerations. Give me an opportunity to collaborate with Chantal and Lia, and I will gladly participate, knowing the experience will be enriching and the service provided to our mutual client will remain at the highest standards I insist on and they deserve.”
