    I have a passion for helping overextended Executive Directors eliminate their grant writing frustrations so they have more time to, well, ya’ know, run a nonprofit. 

    Before starting Upstream Consulting in 2017, I spent more than a decade working with a variety of health and social service organizations. While I enjoyed the work I was doing for one organization, I knew I could use my skills to help a lot more nonprofits. So I packaged up all my years of writing, program development, and evaluation into a business that allows me to help others win more grants for their organizations.

    When I’m not helping nonprofits reduce the frustration of winning more grants, you can find me kayaking Georgia marshes, dancing in the living room, or walking my dog, Mya.
