Trained on Wall Street, Transforming ​ Main Street

In 2011, several private colleges in Boston contacted me to teach graduate-level classes on non-profit budgeting and leadership as part of their philanthropic curriculum.

My college instruction led to  coaching opportunities for adults at Mass. Eye and Ear Infirmary and The Pine Street Inn's IMPACT Employment Services. In addition, parents of young adults as well as business professionals have registered for my private career coaching services.

25 year career began on Wall Street as a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch in the early 90's.

Desiring to make a bigger impact on Main Street, I spent the next 13 years as a professional fundraiser raising funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Boston University, and Franciscan Hospital for Chidren.

I coach non-profits on creating sustainable cash flows that lead to transforming their path to growth.

​​My fundraising coaching service is unique in that it blends several components of my 25 year career to bring my clients optimal results:

The due diligence and analytical skills I learned through my 12 years of relationship building as a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch and Fidelity Investments;

The problem solving, leadership and business management skills I learned for 13 years as a fundraiser  advancing local and national missions in Boston and as a business professor working with non-traditional students from around the world.

My ability to provide exceptional service to diverse populations through my work as a Career Coach at Carroll Center for the Blind, IMPACT Employment Services (The Pine Street Inn) and Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary has brought me immense joy and reward. 

My passions are leading business professionals and their staff toward reaching their fundraising goals through my customized coaching.

I also design non-profit management training curriculum for workforce development programs in Boston.

​My hobbies include traveling, ballet, theatre, writing poetry and my active involvement as a Board Member at ACCION East and Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre.
