Our Story

Just Look Left - Creative Grant Consulting was launched in July 2020 by Elaine Navarro, Founder and CAO (that's short for Chief Awesome Officer). Thirsty for a renewed sense of purpose in her life, this leap was made possible thanks in great part to the encouragement (and endless coaxing) of her visionary husband Adam. Never in a million years did Elaine think that this "little side hustle" would ever become anything more. However, it didn't take long for her to realize that magic happens in the space where passion, skill, and creative-thinking all collide. 

Since this time, Elaine has been able to turn this side hustle into a full-time grant consulting firm, partnering with stellar clients to help make their dreams come true. And you want to know what's really cool? Just Look Left is now operated as a collective effort. We are a team of four dynamite consultants who each bring a unique and valuable perspective to this work. Hey, who ever said grant writing can't be fun?! Not us.
