You’re committed to building a better world.

I’m committed to coaching social sector leaders to clarify priorities and set boundaries to avoid burnout and thrive.

The Great Resignation hit the social sector hard. Understaffing means impossible workloads for nonprofit and philanthropy professionals. No wonder you feel exhausted, anxious and nearing burnout.

You should not have to dread going to work every day or lose sleep doing the work you love.

I’ve been in your shoes. For the past 30 years, I have worked in or with nonprofit and philanthropic organizations to help them meet their missions.

I help social sector leaders clarify priorities and set boundaries to avoid burnout and thrive.
