About Me and My Work

What kinds of projects, tasks, or challenges do you typically partner with nonprofits on?
I help organizations:
- engage in participatory strategic planning to envision the future and identify the key steps to getting there
- plan for and manage leadership transitions
Why would someone choose to work with you?
I partner with organizations using a collaborative approach to help you focus on your most critical issues, to support you in identifying your strengths and to facilitate you imagining new options and choosing a way forward.  

I enjoy helping people tap into their creativity to solve the challenges that face them. Some of my favorite sentences start with, “what if we were to…?”  And I want to have some fun along the way. I believe that the best teams and organizations laugh together as they work together. Fun for me includes questioning conventional wisdom and imagining new possibilities. I love to learn and this helps me get to know your organization and its strengths and challenges quickly. 

I am known for my  candor. People describe me as someone  who speaks my truth and is a down-to-earth. People appreciate my perspective and seek out my advice.

Host of the podcast, Mission: Impact, I have more than 25 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, working at organizations with a range of missions including anti-poverty, women’s employment and empowerment, children, youth and family issues, leadership development, education and conservation. I speak and train frequently on leadership, strategy and innovation topics. I graduated from Swarthmore College, have my Masters in Organization Development from American University and am a Standards for Excellence Licensed Consultant. I also trained with BoardSource and have a certificate in design thinking from University of Virginia Darden School of Business
