I love challenges. An optimist, an activist, and a strategist, I have more than 30 years of experience building relationships that matter: with boards and volunteers, with donors, with colleagues, and with clients and customers. I find new solutions by thinking big, harnessing my endless energy, and getting the best out of my team. Email me today and let's change the world!

Jenni is an ideal leader: a vastly intelligent collaborator, able to give direction or space as needed; skilled at connecting disparate pieces into a whole larger than its parts; quick to grasp the big picture but attentive to essential details; generous with appropriate credit and open to feedback herself. Her energy never flags. Unconcerned with impressive titles, gushing praise or public appreciation, all of which she richly merits, she is more than willing to be an unsung hero. What matters to her is excellent work. She does it herself and she facilitates it in others.
Senior Director of Membership and Wellness, Wallingford Family YMCA
I worked closely with Jenni while she worked as a marketing consultant for the Wallingford Family YMCA. Jenni is very forward-thinking and proactive; she helped take our YMCA to a new level! I was thoroughly impressed with Jenni's vast knowledge, as well as with her professionalism.
Principal, Hands On Fundraising
Jenni is both wildly creative and organized. That’s not a combination that is easy to find. She understands communication because she understands relationships. She is steady, positive, and most of all productive. She remains a valued friend because she has a huge heart. Any organization would be fortunate to work with her.
