I am an independent consultant working exclusively in the nonprofit sector mainly with small nonprofits. At this time, the main focus of my consulting is executive search.   I have a flexible and thorough methodology that works - making the best qualified matches for your executive positions. 

My professional approach considers the needs, culture and budget of every nonprofit I work with.  Often I am asked - "What is small?"  I have search and placement experience with organizations with budgets up to $8 Million.  If you are larger, I am happy to work with you.  But I do want small nonprofits to know that I am attuned to their special situations.  My work is a labor of love.  My consulting areas are concentrated on:

-Executive Search for Nonprofit Executive Staff

-Board and Staff Leadership Development


I am a popular workshop presenter, board retreat facilitator and speaker. My articles are included in two books:  You and Your Nonprofit and You and Your Nonprofit Board.  Both books are published by Charity Channel Press as part of the "In the Trenches" series for nonprofit leaders. My published articles are in Charity Channel’s Nonprofit Boards and Governance Review, Stevenson’s Major Gifts Report and Canadian Fundraiser. My blog articles are featured in Network for Good, Nonprofit Good Practice and Management Help databases. I also have co-hosted the Nonprofit Capacity Building blog at and I have been a guest blogger for the Idealist Nonprofit Career Month blog.

Executive Search for Nonprofit Executive Staff

In transition?  My consulting practice is now focused on helping small nonprofits with their search for executive staff.   I will manage the process so that a Search Committee is actively engaged without having to put in long hours to find the best candidate. 

I offer personalized service tailored to your needs and budget.

If you would like to discuss a project with me, or get more information about my consulting services, please call, or send me an email.
