I have been a nonprofit manager for over 23 years. In addition to actual workplace experience, I have advanced education in nonprofit management and an MBA and a professional certification in fundraising.

My experience includes work in arts, animal welfare, education, and human service.

My background includes program development and management, volunteer coordination, major special events (including a one-day, multi-parish volunteer project for United Way), marketing, fundraising, budget management, staff management, board development, major gift development (gifts up to $2 million), capital campaign management, database management, and crisis communications.

I have written newspaper columns, an article for a national organization's newsletter, and been a published poet. During two of my positions, I did television and radio segments for animal welfare groups.

During a brief period, I was a nonprofit consultant to several groups in California during which I consulted on fundraising, marketing, and budget management.

I have also held many volunteer leadership positions in local community organizations in each of the five states in which I lived.
