Why I Became a Consultant

To put it simply, I love working with nonprofit organizations and always will. I love being a part of the idea of making this tough world a better place for someone else. 

For the past four years, I have worked with almost 20 different nonprofit organizations, stretching across a number of sectors, both nationally and internationally. I had provided an array of services including community and economic development, program development, liaison services, project management, grant preparedness and submission, and board governance, just to name a few. 

Within these four years, I have truly seen the good, the bad, and the ugly of the nonprofit industry. After being a part of these organizations, all in different capacities, I wanted to take my experiences and transfer them into guidance and growth opportunities for other nonprofits experiencing the same or similar obstacles, so they too have the opportunity to redefine themselves.

Being able to share knowledge and expertise in this field is a great passion of mine. I am genuinely dedicated to each organization I work with by bringing creative and customized solutions to each issue at hand, without breaking the bank. ​

Ethics & Values

My mission for my business is simple. I want your organization to grow organically and sustainably. I want to serve your organization in the best way I can by equipping your organization with invaluable guidance so your organization can continue to provide for the community your organization serves. 

I also believe in having ethical partnerships with the organizations I work with. I want to earn your trust with each service I provide. Like your dedication to your community, I am dedicated to providing ethical results for your organization. 

I value diversity. I believe people build a stronger sense of identity and wellbeing and have better education and career outcomes when their diverse strengths, abilities, interests, and perspectives are understood and supported.

I value empathy. I believe empathy allows us to connect with each other and to understand and share in our humanity. Empathy gives us common ground to allow each other to be truly heard and listened to; it allows us a space to experience some of the emotions and feelings of what it takes to be someone else.

I adhere to the Grant Professionals Association Code of Ethics and encourage your organization to do so as well.

As a Community Developer and Nonprofit Consultant, I adhere to the 10 Principles of Community-Centric Fundraising.

Just For Fun

My husband, Kyle, and I have been married since November of 2019. We take care of our 11-year old Labradoodle, Spock. 

I am an avid crocheter. I have made blankets, toys, and everything in between. Feel free to check out my Etsy shop here and my Instagram page

With our wonderful neighbors, we have created a 3-family garden, while also promoting sustainability through composting.

When I am not working, I love being outdoors kayaking, cooking for our family, or scouting out the next ice cream shop with my husband.
