After a consultation assessment, I will provide a detailed set of offerings and prices based on your board and staff’s current needs. Please click the link above to set up a consultation appointment. If you have a specific project in mind, please feel free to send me your RFP template to so we can define clarity together, and I will be in touch as soon as possible with a proposal. If you are looking for conflict management or a review of your governance structure, let’s talk! I have several highly skilled colleagues in these arenas.

I am committed to continuous training and development to provide the best quality services for your organization. I am currently participating in 6 Levers Consultancy Community as well as the Vision, Power, Solutions program with the National Association for Climate Resilience Planners community and the People’s Climate Innovation Center. I hope to also offer consultation in Sociocracy (consent-based governance) by 2025.
