Nonprofit Work Experience

I'm devoted to nonprofits. I love working with board members, staff and volunteers to help bring an organization's mission to life.  I bring skills like development, grantwriting,  budgeting, strategic planning, board development, marketing, and staff management to nonprofits in support of the arts.
