I focus on coaching people who lead small community nonprofits, with up to five staff, who see the organization’s potential and experience the pressures of moving forward.

Listening to you, I can provide practical information that will help you get organized, create more time to achieve your organization’s unique mandate and to plan for the future for yourself, your team and community.

Let’s Work Together

The experiences I’ve had with annual tasks, Boards of Directors, colleagues, and local government, have given me a practical understanding of the challenges nonprofit leaders with small staff numbers and big responsibilities face. Through this, and from others, I’ve learned how to create systems for annual cycle routines that give you more time to build a great team, and to move forward. I focus on helping small nonprofits to:

Create Time-Saving Solutions

  • Define your organization’s mandate
  • Create the best environment for you and your team
  • Organize corporate documents and correspondence
  • Create daily/weekly goals to gain more funding and impact time
  • Build an in-house and remote team that fits your organization’s goals
  • Create annual calendars for funding and reporting

Create Successful Grant Applications

  • Learn about organization summaries and how you can use them in a number of ways
  • Story-line support for summaries
  • Funder criteria and application reviews
  • Preparing for and initiating crowdfunding campaigns

Professional Experience

I received my Master of Arts in Leadership and Training at Royal Roads 25 years ago and have been working with community nonprofits and the great people who work with them for over thirty five years.
