About Me


Currently I am a freelance Fundraising Consultant - dedicated to sourcing ethical funding for global projects. As a strategic problem solver who is dedicated to social justice. I am passionate about finding innovative solutions to the problems that people face, and collaborating with great teams to foster a better world. 

As a development professional I have contributed to successful grant proposals totaling over 26 million, while managing day to day office functions and communication with donors of all levels. Beyond fundraising I am also well versed in reporting and have experience with monitoring and evaluation in the non-profit, international development and education sectors including Outcome Harvesting methods. 

Working with non-profits has allowed me to connect with diverse teams. I am adaptable and flexible and always seek to understand, in order to find the most effective solutions. I am a hard working professional who loves working with small teams toward large scale goals. I am a voracious reader, animal lover, avid traveler who would jump at the chance to chat with you about your most life changing books, furry friends or life’s greatest challenges.
