Through my work with organizational leadership, I help nonprofits improve their effectiveness while building strategies to achieve success for the future. Whether involved for a specific project engagement or through a long-term collaboration, my services are customized to meet your needs, with the goal of helping you strengthen your organization and enhance our communities.
My extensive work for and with nonprofits has positioned me to help your organization in a number of areas, including bringing a seasoned perspective to organizational design, human resource management, leadership development, and financial sustainability planning.
A unique value-add I bring to any work I do is the ability to combine well-honed writing skills with strong analytics—a combination that enhances all of my work, from providing editorial direction on communications strategy, to developing an organizational budget process with a narrative that tells your story. I will help you design operational dashboards and other useful tools to provide key stakeholders with the information they need.
Good governance structures are essential for today’s nonprofits. With the public trust, comes particular responsibilities. Whether your nonprofit is large or small, newly created or long established, reviewing governance documents, policies, and procedures on a regular basis is critical to ensuring board and management are appropriately equipped to lead the organization for a sound future.
But governance is so much more than documents and procedures--it is a philosophy and responsibility to your organization and its future. I provide Board training and executive coaching to guide leaders through new roles or other changes. I also help by evaluating bylaws, policies and committee structures, as well as designing Board assessment surveys.
Strategy & Planning
In my prior work, I’ve managed multiple strategic planning processes, coordinating teams of staff, boards, and consultants to develop effective roadmaps for the future. I understand the importance of affirming mission with inclusive voices, and establishing priorities and goals with achievable and measurable results.
Through this experience, I am able to adapt to varied planning needs, allowing me to assist your organization along its planning path, regardless of where that path begins. Whether designing a complete strategic planning process, refreshing existing plans, or tackling more focused projects, we’ll work together to ensure your organization’s relevance for the future.
