About Me and My Work

What kinds of projects, tasks, or challenges do you typically partner with nonprofits on?
At hyve, we believe that when people feel connected, they go to work and do their best. In organizations with clear direction, intentional leadership, and a sense of belonging, people engage, contribute, and shine. We consult with organizations and people to move great missions forward faster. We support organizations to set clear strategic priorities, align annual goals, and build accountability, while supporting people to strengthen management skills, build resilient teams, and energize staff.
Why would someone choose to work with you?
When clients hire us, they are hiring a partner. Here’s what we bring to the partnership...
- We are compelled to be brave, stay curious, and ask questions of ourselves and those we work with in order to dig deeper and understand the “why” of the struggles faced.
- We don’t shy away from having difficult, courageous, and crucial conversations.

- We do our consulting work because we’re driven to move great missions forward faster.
- We believe in the power of compassion to change people and organizations.

- We hold ourselves to high standards, and our clients expect excellence from us.
- We are dependable, dedicated, and determined to make a valuable contribution.

- We balance thoughtfulness and practicality. We slow down enough to think strategically and analyze situations, while also maintaining a healthy bias toward informed action.
- We embrace “both/and” over “either/or” and believe in progress over perfection.

- Our love of meaningful work creates a sense of vibrancy for us and those around us.
- Clients know us for our positive energy and the joyful attitude we bring to our work.
