I serve nonprofits and the people who power them. Over 18 years, I’ve helped a diverse pool of 100+ nonprofits in Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston and Washington DC sculpt innovative fundraising strategies, build systematic and intentional donor engagement programs, and seamlessly leverage emerging systems and technology to galvanize real relationships with donors. My expertise scales from running a single important campaign for you to building you a completely customized, data-driven fundraising strategy with optimized infrastructure. I never stop learning, and find that I learn the most through teaching. I’ve taught workshops, lectures and presentations for the Association of Fundraising Professionals, the University of Washington, Philanthropy Massachusetts, 501 Commons, The Seattle Foundation, The Russell Family Foundation, and ArtsFund, and have self-produced two independent webinars. I serve as president of the TeenTix board in Seattle.
