My passion is to create change...
in individuals' lives...in local communities...and in our world.
I have worked in both the nonprofit and for-profit fields.
I owned and ran my own small design and marketing business.
I have over twenty years of experience working in the nonprofit field as
Advocate, Grant Writer, Co-founder, and Executive Director.
I have written grants on a part-time basis
accruing $500,000 in foundation monies by achieving a 60% award rate.
I also have worked with youth and adults in the mental health and higher education fields
as coach and support group facilitator, helping others navigate their lives.
My education includes a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Interpersonal Communication,
a Master's degree in Social Change and Spirituality,
and classes in Nonprofit Management and Grant Writing.
I enjoy nature, hiking, meditating, and spending time with my dog, Annie Mae.
