Here’s how I can help . . .
I work primarily with small and mid-sized, mission-driven organizations. I bring my three decades of experience to organizations doing good work with talented people to make them stronger. Below are just a few of the ways in which we can work together.
facilitation & planning
Often you know what you need, but you just want a little extra support and guidance. I can help you plan for and / or run that board or staff retreat, strategic visioning process, fund development plan, or any range of activities that would benefit from an expert, outsider eye.
I’ve spent a lot of my nonprofit and research life, developing logic models and theory of change visualizations, identifying measurable outcomes, determining indicators, creating mechanisms for collecting data, and using evaluation as both a funding and program improvement tool. Funders and donors increasingly want to see how their money is being used. Let me help you build the evidence to make your impact value statement.
coaching for emerging leaders
I was once a young nonprofit professional in need of mentoring and support. I am energized to share what I know with a new generation of leaders. My years of teaching and staff development combined with my on the ground knowledge make me an effective coach for young professionals committed to social missions.
As start-ups grow into small organizations and small organizations grow to mid-sized ones, systems and structures need to adapt. Let me help you breakdown your administrative, program and fiscal challenges into manageable bits that can be solved. I am super organized and creative.
