B3 Consults builds a customized roadmap for each client, diving deep into program assessments, resource investments and staffing challenges. By building a framework that maps where you are and where you’re trying to go, I’m able to tease out the obstacles to reaching your goals and offer practical tools that get results.
This roadmap is the framework for understanding your organization’s current state and determining which aspects of your agency need support. My evaluative approach begins with data: getting a clear picture of organizational needs through interviews with staff and producing a deep dive into metrics, staff roles and project plans. I define key milestones and timelines and help lock in the organizational objectives and a strategy to chart the future.

Making Wise Decisions
A step-by-step guide to picking the
right data system for your non-profit
Organizations thrive when they can clearly articulate their objectives and how they can measure success. I specialize in helping organizations to visualize and define new (or revise existing) theories of change, logic models, guiding star definition or any form of a strategic success map.
Analytics Deep Dive
Sometimes an organization just needs shrewd, hands-on analysis of the existing data. I have an affinity for crunching numbers and guiding organizations towards conclusions that reveal hidden opportunities.
My strength lies in helping organizations clarify wise investment at the evaluation stage.
I have developed custom tools to unblock decision making around tool selection, partnership opportunities and strategic direction.
Planning & Facilitation
With over 15 years experience in project management and meeting facilitation, I can help organizations raise the bar on managing teams, offering varied support from creating project plans or leading meetings and retreats.
Training & Operational Support
I have developed training materials and delivered training sessions to the for-profit, non-profit and government sectors. I routinely partner with organizations on an operational level as well; building job descriptions, facilitating software selection, crafting staff communications and more.
Individual & Team Coaching
As a recognized and credentialed coach, I have an infinite belief in your potential, energy, intuition and compassion. Guiding you through probing questions, I will help you discover your true values and define your polestar, a beacon to guide you toward your destination.
