What We Do


Custom-fit Strategies to help nonprofit teams GROW!

Do you have less than 12 staff & not enough hours in the day to get everything done?

The vast majority of nonprofits have less than 12 staff and an annual operating budget under $500,000. When you need expertise quickly that can help you navigate through the peaks and valleys of nonprofit management, funding and board management,

 I am a phone call or email away.  Nothing to lose, the first hour is on me! 


The Technical Stuff

Whether you're just starting out as a new nonprofit or looking to restructure, merge or dissolve, we've got you covered. Our mantra is: assess, identify, advise & agree on next steps within your budget.  Then, we execute together. Our mission is to create relationships to strengthen nonprofit mission impact.  That's how social change really happens!  Since 2002, our promise  has been: We'll be there, as questions or issues arise, every step of the way. 

Degrees & Certifications: 

-Bachelor of Science, Intl Marketing & Comm, University of MN

-Two Mini-MBAs :  Nonprofit Mgmt & Leadership. Univ of St Thomas

-Sampling of certifications: Strategic Planning, Fundraising Effectiveness (Lilly School of Mgmt, Indiana State Univ), Grief & Trauma Principles & Practices, Program Design with Measurable Outcomes, Nonprofit Finance & Operations, etc.


How to Keep Nonprofits Strong & Sustainable

Sometimes the decisions nonprofits must make, can leave them feeling they're at the edge of a cliff...survival, merge or dissolve?  When you are  looking for a lifeline, reach for a nonprofit sector expert with more than 15-years of in-depth experience. Is your budget limited? No problem. Do you need someone who can help you grow, by understanding all three sectors: nonprofit, corporate and government?  That's me. 

Our first hour of discussion is on my dime, not yours. More than 98% of prospective clients have hired me, after receiving a Project Scope with pricing.  The majority of clients engage my services over time, as needs arise related to:  fundraising diversification, strategic board planning/development, technical assistance and/or required facilitation of capacity building grants.
