I am a consultant in Seattle, Washington, working to help organizations grapple with capacity challenges through fund development, communications and program delivery.
My objective is to demonstrate how the organization impacts those it serves in a compelling way that attracts more program participants, volunteers, donors, and community partners in its mission.
In the early nineties I had the good fortune to be a Peace Corps Volunteer in Malawi, Africa, working as a teacher. This experience was life-changing. I came back having a whole new perspective about poverty, volunteerism, and the true meaning of community.
And ever since my Peace Corps experience, I have tried to find opportunities to make a difference in whatever way I can. I started a blog on philanthropy and writing profiles of organizations and people who inspire me. All of this has led me to land in the area of consulting and also working on accessibility for people with disabilities in the arts. I hope you will come along with me in my journey as I explore issues and challenges.
