Over the last 18 years, I’ve led systems change initiatives for a governor’s advisory council (both Republican and Democrat administrations in Minnesota), a multimillion dollar funders collaborative, and a network of 30+ communities around the country.
I’ve worked with hundreds of nonprofits and many local governments on issues like poverty, unemployment, education, transportation and criminal justice. I’ve also had the opportunity to lead grant initiatives funded by some of the country’s biggest philanthropies, like Ballmer Group and JPMorgan Chase.
But, in 2021, I burned out.
So, I quit my six-figure job and re-designed my life.
Now, I run a small advisory firm for leaders strategically reducing poverty and other social problems in their own local communities. I also create digital products focused on problem solving skills and increasing impact.
