Everybody has a story. Here’s mine.
I’m a strategist, trainer, executive coach and facilitator who is passionate about working with nonprofits to enhance their community impact. I specialize in governance, building capacity and organizational effectiveness, fundraising and keeping donors enthusiastic & engaged in your organization! I am a branding and marketing strategist who loves helping nonprofits tell persuasive stories to get attention, engage volunteers & community partners, and raise money. Tell stories. Inspire action.
I walk the walk, and have served as a nonprofit Board member, CEO, and consultant. I was the founding CEO of HandsOn Greater Phoenix, Executive Director of Valley Leadership and VisionQuest 20/20 and a founding member of the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits. As a consultant, I serve small to mid-sized organizations focused on issue areas from community health, social justice, service and civic action, animals, homelessness, education and the environment. Current and recent clients include the Arizona Mental Health and Criminal Justice Coalition, David's Hope, the Harris Foundation and Gideon's Promise.
My deepest desire is to meet the inspiring people behind the nonprofit, touch lives and create impact. I work best when I am pouring my time and talents into causes and organizations I believe in.
I live in Phoenix with my two adorable, mischievous pups Bentley and Bits, am a certified coffee addict, never met an independant bookstore I didn't love and have a passion for yoga, travel and hiking.
