I offer coaching for fundraisers like YOU.

I enjoy working with fundraisers who are ready to move their career to the next level – whether you are just starting out as a fundraiser or mid-career. You and I will determine where you wish to move in your career, then assess your strengths and work together to help you grow better relationships with donors, hone your skills to get your work done – whether you are in the area of major gifts or annual giving. I help you move to work with more authenticity and emotional intelligence. I’m happy to speak with you during an initial 20-minute discussion.

Let’s talk about what you need. Simply contact me. Coaching prices are customized to your specific needs.

Crafting cases for support.

If your nonprofit is moving toward a campaign – a drive to build a major gifts program, a small capital campaign or a large project – a well-crafted case for support for prospective supporters is a must. Great cases are answers the questions, “Why?” and “Why now?” and invite the supporter to be the solution. Depending on the size and complexity of the campaign, pricing may be in the $2,500 to $5,000 range.

Let’s talk about how I may help your nonprofit grow. Simply contact me for an initial consultation. Success is around the corner!



Our work as fundraisers is inspiring – but it’s challenging, too. I enjoy speaking to small or large groups sharing my experience, expertise and enthusiasm. I’m passionate, authentic, engaging, experienced, and creative. Let’s talk about what you need!

Uncover the story of you.

Do you find it difficult to find the throughline of the story of your life? Do you know your core values, but find it difficult to build context for others? Do you you wish you could more easily and concisely explain who you are and what you offer the world?

Often, it’s easier for an outsider to hear that thread connecting the different parts of your amazing life!

I’ll interview you and then present your strongest threads around your upbringing, career and values. I’ll also provide either topics for speaking or posts and craft the start of a biography. This all comes down to the story of you, and understanding the core of who you are.

I’d love to chat with you – just contact me. The price is $250.


About me

I’m honoured to be a fundraiser. For more than 25 years I’ve been connecting donors with their dreams of a better world through philanthropy. My career has taken me to nonprofits in the US and Canada creating change in education, healthcare, social services and the arts. I’m  part of the fundraising team at Simon Fraser University, serving as Director of Advancement in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. I believe in the power of authentic relationships and gratitude to deepen connections with supporters.

I live in Vancouver, BC, am a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) and serve on the board of the AFP Canada Foundation for Philanthropy. My colleague, Rory Green, and I co-host “Ms.Rupt,” where women fundraisers gather to discuss pressing issues in the non-profit sector. I enjoy speaking at conferences and mentoring open-hearted fundraisers. I know there is much to celebrate and improve in the sector and I enjoy inviting conversations which challenge the status quo.

I grew up in Seattle, WA, and completed my B.A. in Political Science at the University of Washington. I enjoy travel, hosting dinner parties, and connecting with fundraising peers around the world.
