From Ideas to Action


My consulting services are customized to meet each client’s objectives and specific situation.  Whether working with organizations, groups or individuals on new approaches, my focus is on increasing understanding, identifying strategies, and creating a plan of action or practical resources.   Assistance with research, writing and editing emphasizes clear communication that engages the intended audience.  In all cases, I use a collaborative process to help clients achieve their goals.
