I have lived and worked in both the small business and nonprofit worlds. My career has spanned broadcasting, newspaper editing, teaching college history in a prison, rural health care advocacy in Atlanta and Washington, DC, to speaking up about air quality issues at Environmental Protection Agency public comment sessions. Although I am not a gardener by any stretch of the imagination, in less than two years time I turned around an overlooked arboretum and circa 1852 home into a vibrant part of the Milledgeville community.
I care deeply about social and environment justice and strong communities. My approach to work is principled, innovative, inclusive, and results driven. Most recently I have served as a consulting Director of Mothers and Others for Clean Air and Executive Director of Thanks Mom & Dad Fund®, both located in Atlanta.
My life now straddles Atlanta and rural Middle Georgia. My strengths include organizational strategy and assessment, project management, communication, and interim leadership. Ask me how I can make your organization or small company stronger.
