About Me

My purpose is to inspire your Board and staff to master the art of Philanthropy.

My pledge is to steadily and creatively implement personalized strategies to increase your resources and ensure your organization leadership and investors are working together to solve your community’s pressing issues.

My promise is to enlighten and challenge you to develop a deeper relationship with every constituent, investor, board member and staff so you will often be asked “what can I do to help your mission thrive?”

As President of MP Consulting, I provide face-to-face strategy consulting, retreat facilitation and organizational training in the areas of:

  • Board Development & Engagement
  • Strategic planning
  • Mastering Philanthropy
  • Capital Campaign Assessment

Over the past 20 plus years as a development professional, consultant, educator, and implementor, I have experienced it all! I have worked with small budget nonprofits and have seen them grow to multi-million dollar organizations. Similarly, I have skillfully transformed struggling multi-million dollar budget organizations so they were able to stay relevant and buoyant. I will listen to what’s important to you – assess and apply your strengths – recommend achievable approaches – and take you and your Board from intent to execution – steadily swinging your pendulum as you master philanthropy.

I am a Boardsource Certified Board Trainer and a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE). I serve as a Board Member for the North County Philanthropy Council (NCPC) and am a Member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP). I have also served on the Board of the Pat Tillman Foundation, HD South and Gilbert Leadership.

During my free time I enjoy golfing, walking the beach, reading and volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for Foster Children (CASA) and value quality time with my husband, our family and friends – especially our three grandchildren.


At MP Consulting, I believe anything is possible. With the right mindset, relationships and tools, goals will be achieved. I have chosen these core values to consistently guide me:    

  • Integrity – I treat others with authenticity, honesty, and transparency; I strive to do the right thing every day, every time
  • Collaboration – I work efficiently within and across all teams – your board, leadership and your staff, all to engage and empower people to accomplish shared goals and celebrate successes.
  • Accountability – I do what I say and I hold myself accountable to high standards.
  • Respect – I honor diversity and inclusion, treat others with respect, and express gratitude.
  • Excellence – I excel in service delivery, rigorously measure impact, and work to continuously improve myself.

Together I hope we challenge and inspire each other.
