Professional summary

Building on a dozen years experience in City government and another decade working in nonprofits foundations and research/policy organizations, I offer comprehensive, holistic consulting services to support the work of nonprofit organizations, local government, associations and other firms.

I provide a range of services, including strategic planning, program design and program management, organizational and professional development and public policy activities.

Engagement overview

I customize each engagement to the needs of my clients.   I specialize in comprehensive, holistic service to my public and third sector clients, in which one activity or engagement generally leads to a multi-service coaching and supportive relationship rather than a brief, transactional interaction.   My services include strategic planning, program design and development, program/project management, organizational development, professional development, facilitation, grantwriting, policy development and guidance and executive coaching, and I have served a range of roles for organizations including interim executive, start-up guru, internal auditor, truth-to-power-speaker, and jack-of-all-trades in the program and policy arena.   I often serve as the translator between government and business, the non-profit sector and private sector, and within organizations between operations and policy, finance and programs, and anywhere an organization faces communications and conceptual challenges.
