I work to improve governance to help nonprofit leaders achieve impact, uphold high ethical standards in the charitable sector, and build a resilient civil society.
The foundation of my practice is knowledge—I’m dedicated to understanding the links between good governance and successful nonprofit organizations. I am continually searching for what interventions drive results. No less essentially, I relish working with volunteers. It is invigorating to help volunteer board members achieve new levels of impact. The results are astounding—for the organization, volunteers, community, and, most importantly, for the people at the heart of the mission.
