I bring many years of experience to my work with organizations and people seeking to design and implement strategic plans or new programs or initiatives. I can be of assistance if you are seeking an outside perspective; feedback on a strategic plan; someone to organize or facilitate a planning process; or ideas about structure, process, fundraising, staffing, etc. We can work together to design a consulting relationship that benefits your organization, program, or institution.

I provide coaching for those in the non-profit and higher education sectors who are exploring their career options, designing career pathways, or seeking new positions; or individuals who are seeking to grow in their leadership, pursue excellence in their work, or tackle a particular challenge.
