Organizational Development Consulting

for Nonprofits and Worker-Owned Organizations

Good Work Inside Generates Good Work Outside 

Organizations that want to model a better world are my sweet spot. 

There's something you need - skills, understanding, fresh ideas, plans, behaviors - to get you there.

I've worked with nonprofits since 2000 and as a consultant and trainer since 2012, including 2 years with the Human and Institutional Development Forum in Bengaluru, India, and 5.5 years with the Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, PA.  Along the way, I've collected certifications in Grassroots Development and Nonprofit Management, Appreciative Inquiry,  Community Mediation, and the Art of Transformational Consulting. 

I love the buzz of an engaged room, aha moments, facing tricky subjects with both compassion and realism, and using a fresh set of flip chart markers. I bring energy, experience, and perspective to generate greater organizational integrity.
