Professional summary

I founded my coaching and training company, Ignited Fundraising, in 2006 to help social profit organizations find ease around the issues of money and fundraising.

With more than thirty years of speaking, training and coaching experience I have worked with thousands of people and organizations across North America. I believe that there can be ease and joy when raising money for powerful work. My training sessions, blog posts, webinars and Ignited Online Fundraising Community help staff and board members of nonprofits to identify, understand and overcome their fears around asking for or talking about money.

In addition to my work at Ignited Fundraising, I am currently a member of the strategy and training team at ArtsLab a 2-year capacity
