How I can help you

With 35+ years experience leading nonprofits, I can help you simplify starting a new nonprofit or business, or to rethink, scale or pivot a struggling enterprise. Whether it's developing a business plan/roadmap and strategic goals, planning a budget forecast, strategizing for new revenue streams, operationalizing and/or marketing a new product or service, grant research, application development, or grant funds management, we can work together using tools and proven strategies.

Once your business is established, I can help you to develop your staff and your Board of Directors to optimize their effectiveness as business increases. Building an effective Leadership Team and Board of Directors capacity is critical for success - there are tools and resources to jump start this capacity-building.

Professional experience: Experienced CEO, COO, CFO and Board Member in the private non-profit and social entrepreneurship sectors, I have a wide breadth of experience in start-up and NPO strategy, financial forecasting, business analyses and operational efficiencies, business and partnership development, human resource best practices, fundraising and donor development, grants management, public advocacy, Board development, contract negotiations, change management, as well as NPO mergers.

I am particularly passionate about building transparent, accountable, sustainable and high-performing nonprofits and businesses that help individuals, communities and our planet to thrive.
