About Me and My Work

What kinds of projects, tasks, or challenges do you typically partner with nonprofits on?
What is your management style? What competencies can you improve upon? How can you lead your organization towards high productivity? Through Management Coaching, we will work together to help you address your management challenges and become the best manager possible.

This is the collaborative process of identifying short- and long-term goals with quantitative benchmarks. We help you select the strategic planning process that fits your organizational context and guide you in spreading the vision of your plan.

Is your organization stuck in a conflict that keeps you from achieving your organizational goals? We help you identify the conflict drivers and the best avenue for resolution.

Are you starting a new nonprofit? Do you need to set-up bylaws, understand IRS processes, or establish a mission or vision statement? We can help!

We help organizations identify fundraising strategies through a balanced approach including annual campaigns, donor cultivation and identification, major gifts, and capital campaigns.
