About

I help nonprofits and businesses: uncover innovations with potential for widespread adoption, design and run processes  to improve adoption of innovative programs and products, and capture and disseminate key organizational learnings.


I've worked in a number of industries:


- 10 years in the chamber of commerce industry, 16 years total in nonprofits and foundations
- Higher education
- Consulting
- Manufacturing / packaging
- Contingent (temporary) staffing


I wholeheartedly support the philosophy behind Buckingham & Clifton's Strengths Finder - we need to spend more time focused on building our strengths. My results:
