An attentive advisor, I work collaboratively with you to reach your objectives.


I worked with a national management consulting firm from 2001-2009 and conducted program evaluations and facilitated strategic planning processes for a variety of nonprofit organizations, and I also helped develop philanthropic strategies for foundations and corporate citizenship departments. 

Since late 2009, I have worked independently as a Social Impact Advisor and offer a range of services for staff actualization and organizational effectiveness. I'm passionate about understanding and supporting healthy organizational systems.

I believe our personal and professional worlds are intertwined and provide opportunities for insight and growth. My favorite engagements are those where clients are willing to explore scenarios for optimal personal, professional, team-based, and organizational transformation.
