They are essential to humanity, and it is my passion to use the skills I’ve developed over the past 20+ years to help them get the recognition and support they deserve. So how did I get here?
I’ve had the fortune to experience nonprofits from all sides of the equation.
For many years, I was a nonprofit employee, helping further an organization’s mission. After that came a stint in the corporate world as the Corporate Community Development Manager of a statewide utility, where one of my main jobs was awarding large grants to local 501(c)3s.
I loved it all. Each step proved to me that the journey takes you where you need to be when you use your gifts to do good for others. But a feeling deep down kept bubbling up that I could do more, particularly for smaller nonprofits that needed help to generate awareness and support.
Then, after several years of assisting a variety of nonprofits (United Way of Northern Arizona, Goodwill, Boys and Girls Club and many others), I experienced one of those life-altering changes that can stop you right in your tracks.
In my case, it was a diagnosis of breast cancer. It was an experience that was scary and draining and terrible and humbling - but strangely life-affirming as well. I had a loving network that included doctors, family, friends and support staff.
I found that I didn’t have to give up my passion to help others and my business thrived during my treatment.
Not only that, the experience also gave me a unique perspective for my work because, now, I was a client needing the assistance of nonprofits.
I was the one who relied on the heartfelt mission of organizations like Cancer Support Community of Arizona.
All of this just strengthened my passion and purpose to do what I believe is most important – using the skills, knowledge and experience I’ve gained over 20+ years and putting it in the service of mission-based organizations.
