I offer coaching for fundraisers like YOU.

I enjoy working with fundraisers who are open-hearted or ready to work more authentically with emotional intelligence. I’m happy to speak with you during an initial 20-minute discussion by phone or Skype.

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

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!

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.
