As an experienced, certified nonprofit fundraising executive, my mission is to help communities and nonprofit organizations attain their fundraising and public relations goals in the most efficient, thoughtful, and high quality manner possible.

I use new technologies when appropriate to reduce cost, to enhance efficiency, to communicate, and to conduct research. Simultaneously, I use traditional, time-tested fundraising strategies and practices. The best of both worlds!
