I am affectionately referred to as “The Grant Guru” and “The Nonprofit Expert” because my mission is not towards me, but towards all nonprofit leaders out there who have responded to their calling—to provide a solution to their community’s problem.
My mission is to help you turn your vision of helping others to a sustainable reality. Together, we can turn your vision of helping others into a sustainable reality.
For 30 years, I’ve worked with a variety of nonprofits as a grant writer, fundraiser, coach, strategic planner, program developer, organizational assessor, facilitator, trainer, and mentor. Having held every position in the nonprofit, I’ve provided support and training to thousands of nonprofit staff, board members and volunteer leaders in 47 U.S. states, Thailand, and Canada.
Recognized as a leading expert in my field, I have helped small and large nonprofits alike to raise hundreds of millions of dollars through major gift and capital campaigns, board development, annual fund campaigns, direct mail, and planned gift solicitations.
Based on my knowledge of and experience working in the nonprofit, I have developed signature introductory and advanced training to support nonprofits, starting with a sustainability plan to follow. My work as a trainer and coach has afforded me many platforms to speak at conferences, on the radio, and on organizational retreats.
I specialize in guiding nonprofits leaders through times of organizational startup, growth, and change through the unique perspective I’ve formed by working in various positions in nonprofits, and having trained thousands of leaders nationally and internationally. As an integral aspect of my organizational development and fundraising work, I help nonprofits create clarity and strengthen their structure, community awareness, leadership capacity, and board oversight.
