I founded my free-lance consulting practice in 1990, after working on staff at several non-profits, including the position of Assistant Director of Development at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Since then, I've served more than 30 clients, specializing in fund raising and management consultation for arts and education non-profits. On the development front, I'm proud that every organization which I've helped for six months or more has secured new funding.

My consulting practice is influenced by my other hats and passions. I am an award-winning poet, an active poet-in-the-school, advising editor of Rhino literary magazine, and a coordinator for the Evanston Jazz Festival.
