Because Change Is Possible


The focus of my consulting practice is to help small organizations 

"right size" big ideas.

My 18-year career in higher education fundraising and outreach afforded me the opportunity to work in shops with ready-made constiuencies, the best databases, big budgets and sufficient full-time staffing.  It was an incredible gift and a true apprenticeship to be part of these organizations.  The big news I bring to my clients is that the principles behind successful board development, volunteer engagement, solicitation, event planning, and visibility are the same, regardless of your organization's size or budget. 

Success is possible, even on a shoestring budget.

I only work with organizations whose heart and mission are consistent with my own​. If I can't be your donor, I certainly can't be your consultant. I direct my time and talent toward encouraging community, joy, peace, civility, health, opportunity, equality social justice, and earthcare.

I am available to bid projects, to provide executive coaching (particular to executive skill building regarding volunteer and board management, donor cultivation and solicitation, and communications strategy), to llead worskshops and board retreats, and as a short-term contract employee.
