I work to identify the actual (upstream) challenges in business, nonprofits and larger systems and engage others to make sustainable positive change. Organizations hire me when they are not satisfied with the status quo.
Formerly an executive director, program director, development and marketing director, and an entrepreneur on my own and within organizations, I have significant experience in the arts, health policy, small business and philanthropic sectors. My style is strategic and collaborative and I communicate widely and well.
I combine thoughtful data, proven tools, consistent quality improvement, thorough preparation, ongoing and wide-ranging reading and research, flexibility and creativity, the ability to see both the big picture and the impact of the next steps, and an innate ability to "cast" groups effectively to solve problems.
My commitment to a valuable process is coupled with a passion for measurable results.
