About Me and My Work

What kinds of projects, tasks, or challenges do you typically partner with nonprofits on?
I have helped Boards become strategic in their agenda setting and discussions. I've helped boards become more functional and productive.

I've helped non-profits dream their strategic plan and set it into motion. I'm a big believer that strategic plans shouldn't sit on a shelf to collect dust. It's a living breathing document and I can coach non-profits in how to put their plan into action after they've dreamt it.

Board members need a solid orientation. I can orient your Board on the basics of being a valuable contributor to the Board and a leader for the non-profit.

I can help with bylaw amendments, as well as policy development and amendments.
Why would someone choose to work with you?
While there are basic tenants that are common from one non-profit to the next, I believe that each non-profit is unique. I won't put your organization in a bucket. We'll roll up our sleeves and dig down into what's special about your group. We'll take it from there.

I have 15 years in the non-profit industry, most of which has been at the c-suite and in governance - I'm known as the Governance Gal. You can read my biography here: www.governancegal.com/about.

You can learn about my approach best by reading my blog. I also have free resources and templates for non-profits on my website. www.governancegal.com

While I have experience with all non-profits, I specialize in 501c6 - that's mostly trade associations, professional associations, and chambers of commerce.

I've been a staff person of non-profits, and I've served in a volunteer capacity of President, Vice President, and Treasurer of non-profits. I can see both sides of the coin when taking on a non-profit conundrum.
