I spent two decades building an organization, advising other organizations, and participating in networks with other social entrepreneurs, community builders, and advocates. I’ve been a client of plenty of consultants, worked with an executive coach for over a decade, and cultivated many mentors. The best consultants helped me move from the dance floor to the balcony for perspective; helped me understand both the technical and adaptive challenges I faced; shared some new insights, knowledge, and tools; and facilitated our team to build on our assets and values to develop the capacities needed to achieve our goals. They also encouraged my perseverance and growth as change is never easy.

My goal is to be a thought partner, advisor, and facilitator that helps leaders and organizations build the insights and capacities needed to achieve better results. Through my experience, resources, and networks, I help nonprofits and philanthropists in the following areas:

Organizational Strategy
Program Development
Replication and Growth
Collective Impact

Asset-Based Community Development
Community Engagement
Civic Engagement
Public Policy and Advocacy
Presentation and Communications

Leadership Development
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Recruiting and Retaining Talent
Team Building
