Years ago, I took my nonprofit vision and made it my full-time career.

Once upon a time, I felt inspired to make an impact in my community and launched a nonprofit with little experience, a handful of supporters, and zero dollars in start-up funds. Now, I run the Nonprofit I started as its full-time Director, working to fulfill the organization's purpose alongside a team of staff and an amazing board of directors! I can't wait to help you turn your idea into a successful nonprofit through my Founder to Full-Time Academy courses. I'm looking forward to meeting you!
