She has a proven track record in thoughtfully growing organizations in diversity, constituents, financially and reputation at large. She has increased the number of donors and giving levels at multiple organizations, allowing organizations to grow their budget and effectiveness. She has brought several nonprofits to the next level utilizing marketing, education, communication, management, development and relationship building skills.
