Resourceful relationship builder, development and fundraising veteran with twenty successful years of nonprofit Board experience and management. Both a dedicated team player and disciplined self starter, I appreciate the power of human intention and goals. I see the necessity of organization, timeliness and managing expectations. And I honor the value of diverse perspectives, of respecting others, of listening deeply, of being grateful.
Recent nonprofit highlights:
~ Creation of communications plan for nascent 501(c)(3) foundation focusing on climate change solutions, organizing vision/mission statements, positioning, and establishing their online presence with development of an original website and social media, The Vos Foundation.

I often look at a challenge (the more daunting, the better) and think, THIS is where it gets interesting. I delight in meeting new people and facilitating their joy in supporting what is important to them.
