Empowering Mission-Driven organizations to cultivate the passion, talent, and purpose inside the staff and board to make an even bigger difference in the outside world.

Promoting Positive Change 

Website Banner Options (19).png

Helping Mission-Driven Organizations do their brand of good even better is one way I feel like I can make a positive difference in the world. Since that day in my pre-teen years when Mom forced me out of bed pre-dawn on Christmas Eve to help assemble and deliver Christmas baskets to families in need, I have been passionate about the positive difference organizations, and those who run them, can make in the lives of others. 

Effective communication improves nearly every angle of a mission-driven organization. From elevated morale to increased productivity and interaction among staff and board, more prosperous fundraising to more inspired volunteer recruitment, greater visibility to more effective advocacy, the ability to communicate and connect effectively has positive ripple effects into all areas of promoting a mission.

With more than 30 years in nonprofit leadership and consulting, I bring practical insights and solutions from both the communication world and the mission-driven nonprofit and advocacy world.


I marry visionary inspiration with down-to-earth practicality to help organizations succeed. Below I’ve curated tools and approaches that I’m both deeply trained in, and have also experienced the power of in my own life and work, and in the clients and organizations served with them.
