Here’s what I do that will help you excel at what you do…

Create compelling stories that strengthen your brand and increase revenue

Here’s how I help you achieve excellence…

Research and Planning
Learning all you can about a potential donor increases your chance of receiving funding. Asking for constituent and customer feedback helps you plan for the future and builds upon your strengths. My curious nature and insightful questions always elicit valuable information for my clients.

I create an environment where all views can be safely expressed. My mediation and facilitation training, plus years of experience, ensure that participants’ time is valued and that thoughtful decision-making occurs.

Telling your story effectively is critical to the success of your service or program. I will write captivating copy that delivers your desired results. It’s a skill I’ve honed working in public relations and writing for newspapers and television.

Grant Writing
When a client’s grant is funded, it’s not just due to my writing ability and a client’s vision—that’s one part of a successful grant submission. Understanding how to approach funders is equally important. I will coach you on how to strategically present your proposal.
