One of the most fulfilling aspects of my career has been the opportunity to undertake a wide array of projects. Each of these endeavors has provided me with the chance to learn, grow, and contribute in a different way. As a creative person, I enjoy assembling the necessary pieces to arrive at or surpass the desired outcome. As a compassionate being, I personally am rewarded by helping advance the vision of others who are working to make this world a better place.

Social Media Presence
I love social media! If you aren’t using this avenue to tell your story, you are missing out on one of the best, most cost-effective ways to connect the public with your important work. Maybe you just need someone to sit down and chat with to figure out how to launch or improve your strategy and approach, or maybe you need help starting from the very beginning. From advertisement strategies to effective post ideas, I can help you devise an approach that gets results.
Photo & Video
It’s cliché, but true. A picture is worth a thousand words… and a video must be worth at least a gazillion. :-) Not everyone has an eye for what is attractive, compelling, or how to put your subject at ease. I’m not a professional photographer or videographer, and I don’t claim to be. However, I have a creative eye and a vision for how to tell your story. I am accustomed to respectfully working with people from all walks of life, bringing out their personality, dignity, and beauty and making it shine. In today’s digital world, photos and videos are vitally important, but also have a very limited shelf life. Let me help you find a way to meet that need without breaking the bank.
Grant Proposal Writing
I began my career in fundraising as a grant proposal writer. It’s my “Old Faithful,” and the good news is that the internet has made it much less painful than it once was. I can help you research potential grant funders to make your dream come true, review the proposal you've written and provide advice and edits, or see that proposal you just don’t have time for through to completion. Let me help make the grants process successful for your organization.
