What do working moms make for dinner on Sundays? Leftovers! Working moms know if you are going to put the effort into a major production, have something useful left over when it’s done.

That’s the insight behind my approach to strategic communications, community engagement and campaigns – drive today’s process to deliver what your organization needs in the next phase. It can mean:

  • Using a report launch to position a new chief executive officer as a regional thought leader
  • Conducting strategic planning interviews to reach new employment markets and initiate workforce partnerships
  • Building not only enhanced communications capacity but also stronger leadership relationships

My work is grounded in a long history of leadership as well as pedagogy from today’s management and development practices. I deliver effective, values-based strategic communications and community engagement campaigns that are focused on achieving long-term organizational development goals, building the capacity of individuals and teams, and meeting basic human needs.

How can I help your organization meet programmatic goals and build capacity?


  • Leadership coaching and organizational development
  • Strategic communications
  • Community engagement and constituency building
  • Project and coalition management for collective impact
