STEP 4: Meet Your Nonprofit Trainer & Her Consulting Team

Empowerment in Action: Why Choose Us?

Three decades. That's how long I've been in this dance. But it's not just about the years. As an educator, my voice echoes on platforms like Hilborn, YouTube, podcasts, and so much more. And I'm a proud Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE), which means I had to prove myself in the field.


But here's the real deal — I don't just coach and consult; I cheer, champion, and care. When you and I team up, it's a partnership, a bond, a journey. My belief in your mission isn't fleeting; it's fierce.


So, if you're seeking more than just a consultant, if you're hunting for a heartfelt advocate, a partner, a cheerleader – you've landed in the right place.
