    The greater Portland area boasts one of the most thriving, eclectic and well-rounded nonprofit communities in the country. Our nonprofit clients are front and center in this dynamic environment. In short, their efforts help make the region a more equitable place to live. Knowing this, we’ve built a financial statement, tax, and consulting practice that helps nonprofit organizations continue their work and enhance their respective missions.

    For these organizations, limited operating revenue and volunteer staffing can create a variety of challenges. In an effort to mitigate these challenges, each of our nonprofit clients receives direct attention and involvement from one or more of our principals, a fact that distinguishes us from most other firms. We balance the depth and experience that comes with engagement team continuity and the capacity to offer fresh perspectives with team rotation.

    Interim Management
    Management and Organizational Development Consulting
    Strategic and Business Planning

    I’ve been helping nonprofits find ways to make doing their good work easier since 1986. I am a professional coach and facilitator with deep experience in the nonprofit world: I’ve been an executive director twice, helped found four successful nonprofits, and supported the development of a wide variety of organizations as a facilitator, trainer, interim director and coach (you’ll find more details under about me). I love helping nonprofit staff and board members discover what’s making things difficult and identify ways to make doing their work easier, more effective, and more satisfying.

    How I Can Help

    I facilitate retreats and processes; train board and staff in communication, decision-making, collaboration, leadership development and facilitation; help design and evaluate systems; and provide coaching for teams and individuals. Please click the Facilitation, Coaching, and Training buttons under Services for more details on what I offer in each of these arenas.

    How It Works

    Regardless of whether the task at hand is to have a great retreat, improve communication and decision-making, make an important decision, design a new program or process, or improve the performance of a team or individual, I will help you create a process that:

      Meets you where you actually are;
      Reflects your core values and mission;
      Provides practical tools that accomplish your goals and are easy to learn, teach, remember and use;
      Connects to real work you are trying to get done now;
      Builds on the deep knowledge that you (the staff, board, etc.) already have to develop approaches that will work for you.
