Let's find prosperous solutions for your independent school - together.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing a struggling school begin to thrive. My hope is that you’re here to make a positive change as well. I sincerely hope my advice can be a part of that change.

The services I provide are explained in great detail on a page I call "What Does an Advancement Consultant Do?"

The blog I've been writing for over three years covering the lessons I've learned in the field should give you a strong sense of my ethos. And you can see my list of former clients, who I am happy to report, have all endorsed my work.

Whether you're looking for a consultant for your independent school or are in the field of advancement yourself and want to talk shop, reach out. I always love meeting new people and getting fresh perspectives.

    Advancement 201
    Advancement 201

    Over the past five years I've found it tremendously helpful to jot down the many lessons I've learned over the years in and out of schools and advancement offices. A couple years ago I started reaching out to other professionals to get a small list going, and - when I share my latest - we start to share ideas back and forth.

    I call the assorted collection of blog articles "Advancement 201" because, while looking back through these, I find myself learning the same lessons over and over. It's a lot to dig in to, but perhaps you too will find something tremendously helpful while perusing.

    If so, send me an email. I'd love to chat.
