Let's talk about what you need
Combining 30+ years of marketing and graphic design experience in non-profit and for profit companies, I know how to help you reach a broader audience, raise money, and achieve your goals.
Let's create the solution.
Need a new website, database design, or launching a capital campaign? I've been there in those "start-up trenches" with limited budgets & the need for effective, measurable, creative solutions.
Graphic & Digital Design
Logos, letterhead, brochures, packaging, posters, videos, advertising and Websites. These are all tools in your arsenal to show people what you do, who you are and/ or what you offer. Make sure they represent you and your organization from your business card to your signage. Be clear, be professional and be prepared. Do you have what you need for a mail campaign? A sales call? Your next big event? Do you know what you can do on a $1,000, $5,000 or $10,000 budget. If you don't, I do. And it costs you nothing to ask me.More →

Board & Leadership Training
Having served as an elected school board member, and on numerous private and public Boards - I've seen the good, the bad and the ugly. And as a former Executive Director reporting to those Boards, I have seen it from both sides of the table. This experience allows me a unique perspective on organizational problems and solutions. How can a strong Board help your organization reach full potential? Do you have the proper tools in place to manage and raise funds effectively? Is your Board or Executive Management following Best Practices? Planning a Board or Staff Retreat? I lead workshops, consult and advise nonprofit leaders.
