I help education groups develop communications strategies that advance their mission and goals.

Don’t let your hard work and accomplishments become less visible because you are lacking an effective communications strategy. 


An effective strategic communications plan is the roadmap you need to achieve your organizational goals with the resources and capacity at hand.


I can assist your approaches to: 

  • Grant proposals
  • Blog posts
  • Social media
  • Whitepapers
  • Annual reports
  • Donor campaigns

When you hire me, I bring the knowledge, experience, and expertise that you can trust. I am skilled in bringing a wide variety of complicated and industry-specific information to a general audience in language that inspires them to act.


Here’s what you can expect:

A deep knowledge base of education and nonprofits. I read widely in the sector publications of record that you also read and rely on. I bring the depth and perspective of graduate training in these fields and on-the-ground experience in K-12 and higher education settings.

Communications strategies that work across your many needs. I can make your case for support on websitesbrochures, fundraising letters, newsletters, annual reports, grant proposals, policy papers.

A transparent and organized process. We’ll use the Smart Chart, a time-tested template that walks us through the right questions in the right order. Every project begins with this process.

Communications strategies informed by the best practices in the field. The Internet is exploding with information. I follow industry trends in strategic communications that draw on content marketing, best practices in SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and impact measurement to ensure that you’re getting that ROI (return on investment) and keeps your organization top-of-mind in your community and your field. 

I want your mission to succeed because I believe in it as much as you do.  I provide these services because I needed them when I was in your role.


This is the reason behind my work: when you advance student access and student success, we all benefit.
