Writing has always been my passion; somehow, I've been lucky enough to find a way to fold it into my work. My ability to speak in the voice of the audience, as well as the voice of the brand, has led to success in grant writing, social media marketing and content planning. After an inspiring volunteer experience, I started working for a progressive nonprofit that both accepted, and fostered my desire for an entrepreneurial approach to nonprofit management. I bring almost a decade of experience, enthusiasm, and passion for the world of nonprofit. My projects range from short-term to long-term, and I am also a skilled strategy consultant. My motto has always been "nonprofit at heart, entrepreneurial in spirit." My own personal mission is to leave an organization in better shape than I found it. So far, so good!
