"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." -- Eleanor Roosevelt
I have been helping nonprofits and fund development consultants through periods of growth since 2014. My goal is to connect nonprofit clients to funders eager to support their work and help them fulfill their mission.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth with a B.A. in American Indian Studies and started my career in education teaching Ojibwe language & culture on the Fond du Lac and Mille Lacs Reservations in Northern Minnesota. I relocated to San Francisco in 2012 and worked for the San Francisco Unified School District before launching into the grant writing profession. I am currently the Board Treasurer for the Grants Professional Association's Greater Bay Area Chapter.
I am committed to building caring, equitable, and thriving communities by helping nonprofits increase capacity and create stable, diverse bases of financial support. My background as an educator gives me a unique perspective that I bring to my current role as a Nonprofit Grant Consultant: I disseminate valuable information about nonprofit organizations and their programming to potential funders while also giving clients the tools they need to propel their organizations to the next level.
