My work in research, program development, and funding spans 19 years (see résumé). While I was finding success in academic research and administration, I was compelled to do more to support scientific impact on a broader scale.
I went on to develop strategic funding programs, then become the primary science advisor to the president of a $5.5 billion charitable trust. In this role, I noticed a broader need for support and advising in funding areas from health to the environment, , for communities on a local and global scale. Thus I began to consult independently, beginning in 2016.
I draw on broad-ranging technical knowledge and literacy, critical thinking, relationship management, and a diverse network across sectors. I have helped leaders - from private philanthropists to foundation executives, from university presidents to founders of nonprofit ventures - to achieve their goals.
Above all, I get the most satisfaction from supporting my clients, by helping them to see through their missions in science.
