    About Me and My Work

  • What kinds of projects, tasks, or challenges do you typically partner with nonprofits on?
  • Combining my nonprofit experience with skills honed over 20 years, my consulting gives a fresh perspective to help your nonprofit meet its most important goals. I consult clients on a variety of topics not limited to:

    Organizational development
    Organizational assessment and evaluation
    Board development and training
    Strategic planning and facilitation
    Resource development
    Program development, marketing, and evaluation
    Capacity building program design and development
    We also consult our clients on a variety of grant-related topics including:

    A grant readiness assessment of your proposed project.
    Research to identify funders with interest that match your cause and geographical area.
    Guidance in assessing your capacity to meet the grant post-award requirements.
    Coaching and support in engaging and cultivating prospect funders
    Guidance and technical assistance in project development
    Grant proposal writing, including Letter of Intent when required.
    Grant reporting
  • Why would someone choose to work with you?
  • My clients benefit from not only my continued learning and professional development, but my over 20 years of nonprofit experience, including organizational development and leadership, board development, program development, financial management, fundraising, and community relations. I have held pretty much every role in a nonprofit and bring to bear not only my technical expertise but lessons learned in the trenches! Theory is one thing; real life is another. My being able to say, "been there, done that" has given my clients an added sense of partnership as we work together to solve their real-life issues.
