Are you overwhelmed trying to find new resources to move your mission forward? Piles of grant application deadlines collecting on the calendar and no staff to do them?

I can help

Having worked as a fundraising and sales professional for over 20 years in the not for profit and for profit sectors, I have experienced what works (and doesn’t) when it comes to effectively communicating your vision, applying for grants, and fundraising. And I’m passionate about passing this knowledge along to those who need support and advice in order to keep on doing more good.

Here is me about 8,000+ feet up in the air in the Italian Dolomites. I know from climbing, how important an experienced guide is in helping overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. I’m that guide for you – helping actualize the positive impact that you and your team are working so hard to make.
