As a Social Impact Advisor, I work with clients as a consultant, facilitator, and coach.
My style comes from being raised by educators, living and working in diverse communities, serving in volunteer corps, working within nonprofits in various departments, earning a M.S. in Public Service Management, and supporting hundreds of leaders in a variety of organizations. This includes museums, schools, corporate charities, churches, associations, federations, start-up social enterprises, foundations, social service agencies, technology solutions' firms, etc.
I am passionate about supporting people and systems for positive social impact.
From 2001-2009, I worked with a national consulting firm and conducted evaluations and facilitated strategic planning processes for a variety of nonprofits and also helped develop philanthropic strategies for foundations and CSR departments. Since then I have worked independently and offer strategy, evaluation, giving, and team development services. For some projects, I draw from my trusted professional network (e.g., lawyers, HR consultants, creatives, etc.), and I affiliate.
I hone my approaches through professional development, client feedback, and reflection. A passionate learner and entrepreneur, I adopt meaningful advances in the ever-evolving nonprofit and business sectors.
My favorite projects are those where clients bravely face challenges and explore promising potentials for personal, team-based, and organizational transformation.
