With more than twenty years experience in academic and clinical research, community program planning, and nonprofit management and development, Ty has a reputation for helping people secure and sustain nonprofit status without the traditional headache or hassle, while equipping them with the tools necessary to increase their capacity for nonprofit success. Ty is a Certified Nonprofit Consultant, and holds formal degrees and training in psychology, public health, and community health education.

It was during this work that Ty observed the desire of community-based organizations to reap the benefits that came along with having major partners or securing substantial amounts of funding.

With Ty’s help, small and underexperienced nonprofits have experienced greater success with diversified funding efforts, developed promising and profitable partnerships, increased capacity, and are better positioned to secure funding from federally recognized agencies such as NIH and SAMHSA.
