I am an independent consultant working exclusively in the nonprofit sector mainly with small nonprofits.  Small nonprofits usually do not have the staff to conduct an executive search for a new Executive Director or senior staff member.  They need Board training and development but many of the available resources are more applicable to larger organizations.  Here's where I come in.  My work is a labor of love and relevant for smaller organizations.  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 co-host 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.  My approach will help you identify outstanding candidates at a low cost and 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. 

My fee for this service is very reasonably priced. 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.
