About Me and My Work

What kinds of projects, tasks, or challenges do you typically partner with nonprofits on?
I primarily work with mission-driven organizations and social impact leaders to clarify, create, and execute winning strategic campaigns.

I specialize in assessing power and the landscape to create full cycle, comprehensive advocacy campaigns.

The organizations I typically work with may be unsure how to advance their social impact campaign, juggling multiple roles, facing a pressing policy issue, not sure how to scale-up their campaign, and/or constrained by their resources. I help organizations think strategically to find win-win solutions through:

✅ Strategic Analysis: Identifying bottlenecks and analyzing existing strategies to refine and enhance your approach.
✅ Crafting Effective Campaigns: Developing compelling campaigns that resonate with stakeholders and policymakers, garnering the support needed for policy adoption.
✅ Navigating Stakeholder Engagement: Forming alliances and engaging diverse stakeholders crucial to policy advocacy, ensuring broad-based support.
✅ Precision in Execution: Implementing strategies with precision, leveraging proven methodologies to drive measurable outcomes.
✅ Policy Expertise: Navigating policy and regulatory complexities and offering strategic insights to strengthen your policy proposals.

Services Include:

✅ Campaign Strategy & Execution
✅Stakeholder Engagement & Coalition Building
✅Policy Advocacy & Environmental Impact Assessment
✅ Thought Leadership
Why would someone choose to work with you?
Upriver Consulting champions the transformative power of every individual in shaping our planet's future. Collaborating with us means more than gaining unparalleled expertise; it's about co-creating a sustainable world where humanity and nature harmonize seamlessly.

I've led impactful efforts, uniting the Great Lakes region against harmful water legislation and briefed the White House on crucial safe drinking water policies. Working closely with Governors, I've prevented water shutoffs during COVID-19 and influenced legislation at federal and state levels.

My forte lies in building unconventional coalitions that secure funding, drive policy change, and garner commitments from government bodies. From securing multimillion-dollar grants for electric vehicle infrastructure to influencing justice-centered policies, I'm dedicated to ensuring your mission succeeds.

With a deep grasp of environmental science, policy strategy, and a talent for forging connections, I offer hands-on support that integrates seamlessly with your team. Together, let's innovate, create campaigns that surpass goals, and leave an enduring legacy that echoes your mission long after the campaign ends.
