Fourteen years ago, I started my consulting business so that I could work with a
variety of organizations and use my skills as a writer and as a group facilitator
to help my clients with the important work they do. I am available to help you
or your organization with anything from web content and design, to grant
I can be an asset to an organization looking to bring a fresh perspective to a
project, a surge of energy to their current efforts, or refined skills to a detailed
task. My passion for education, youth, children, and families leads to quick
alliances with organization staff and an ability to quickly understand and
effectively communicate a shared vision.

As you can see from the other information on this site, I have had a long and
diverse career in the non-profit world. I am always looking for interesting
projects that will allow me to support the work of organizations focused on
education, community services, and/or the arts.

While I am always ready to take on new types of projects and challenges, the
following is a brief list of services I typically offer:

  • Workshop and group facilitation - including strategic planning
  • Training/faculty development
  • Writing and editing - everything from mission statements to newsletters
    to complete books
  • Web content and/or design
  • Grant proposal and report guidance and writing
  • Youth outreach, group development, and group facilitation
  • Research - including field studies
  • Curriculum development and implementation

I am also interested in providing support to students writing college and
graduate school application essays. I currently work as a consultant to a
company that provides this service to Chinese and Taiwanese students looking
to study in English-speaking colleges.

Southern New England as well as via telecommuting. I look forward to learning
how we can work together to help you achieve your goals.
