You know what it takes to make change.

When you focus on the work you love, you can make a big impact in your community. You have the expertise to make good decisions. You are creative. You have deep understanding of your community and good instincts. 

But you don’t always have the right time or the right people to make change when it is needed.

I can help you communicate your work in a way that will change minds and inspire action, and together we’ll get you set you up with strategies so you can shine the spotlight on your good work. Read more below about how I work with individuals and organizations and the services I offer.



You are writing a book because you want to change the status quo and make life a little easier for people. As a Author Accelerator certified book coach, I can help you reach your readers and write a book they can’t leave on the shelf. One-to-one coaching sessions and group workshops available.



You found the perfect grant opportunity but you need a strategy to get it done before the deadline. Or maybe you need a grant writer. I will work with you to prepare the best case for grant support.



Are you a small non-profit with big plans? Tell me what you need! I’ve worked on strategic planning, project budgets, policies and procedures. Unlock your potential.

Every now and then I send out a newsletter with news, discounts, and blog posts. Sign up for The Book Case below, where I explore the practice of delight, writing for readers, and writing with purpose. 

About me

A former non-profit director, magazine editor and writing coach, I find work most exciting when I am serving those who are using their talents or making social change. You’ll find me in the background, making sure the event rolls out, the story is edited, the grant applications are written, the promo material and press releases are sent out.  With experience in one-to-one memoir coaching, I’ve worked closely with people to unearth their hidden stories and talent for storytelling.

You need someone to support you while you focus on what you are most passionate about. Strengthen your business or organization, or learn how to communicate your story in a way that will change minds and inspire action. Lean on my experience in successful grant-writing to unlock funds for new projects.

You do the good, creative work, and I’ll bring my talents and experience to you and support you. Email me today and let’s talk about what you need.
