Research: My recent doctoral research took me to digging deep into what makes nonprofits tick (organizational management) and how donor decisions influence nonprofits (philanthropy). Research makes me happy and I will continue to do more of it.
Nonprofit management: My facilitation consulting takes clients through leadership, capacity building, strategic planning, organizational culture, and governance. I focus on strengthening engagement and connections withing organizations and between them, and enhancing information flows.
Philanthropy: The role of private funding of the nonprofit world has increased rapidly in the past 2 decades. My research and consulting taps into the knowledge and experience of donors, implementers, and end-use recipients to better understand this changing landscape. I work with donors who want to maximize and leverage their contributions to causes they care about, and with nonprofits that are seeking collaborative opportunities with multiple stakeholders.
