Capacity-Building

Policy Analysis & RESEARCH

I provide clear, concise, nonpartisan explanations and recommendations on complex education and social policy issues. It’s what I do best.

Advocacy

I will champion your cause with tenacity, diplomacy, and the highest ethical standards. 

Grant Writing & Prospect Research

Let an expert handle your grant proposals and report writing, so you can raise more money while saving time to do what you do best. I can manage everything from prospect research to small foundation proposals and multi-million-dollar federal grant applications.

Cases for Support

I will help you develop a strong case for support that resonates with foundations, major donors, and public funders. I also can work alongside your board or staff to solicit major gifts and steward meaningful relationships.

Program Evaluation & Database Optimization

Is your program making an impact? How do you know? I will dig deep into your program, donor, or constituent data, clean it up, and help you use data to drive results.

PARTNERSHIPS & Creative Education Projects

Are you ready to create something radically different? Like a community school? Or a college access network? Me too. Let’s go for it.

Communications

Writing & Editing

There’s nothing I can’t handle. I have written and edited hundreds of policy briefs, state statutes, blog posts, newsletters, annual reports, op-eds, Congressional press releases, candidate speeches, corporate trade journal articles, math software, dissertations and theses, etc. No job is too big or too small.

Website & Social Media Content

I’ve provided content, design, and strategy for dozens of websites, blogs, and social media platforms. I can boost your online presence quickly and cost-effectively, so more people can learn about your great work.

Connections

Coaching

Great schools and organizations are built on a culture of trust in which everyone feels empowered to dare greatly and bring their wholehearted selves to the arena. My group facilitation and coaching, based in part on the work of Brene Brown’s Dare to LeadTM and Daring ClassroomsTM, can help your team get there. (Coming soon!)
