A little bit about me...

At the age of six, I wrote my first book about my favorite flavors of ice cream. Since that time, I planned on becoming some sort of writer. As an adult, I became passionate about having an impact in areas such as literacy, child welfare, and community leadership, so I was thrilled to realize that I could use my writing superpowers to help nonprofits support and expand their programs. With each grant that I successfully secure, I help change the world - one nutrition program, school library, or foster care mentoring program at a time.
​I have been involved with fundraising and nonprofit work since 2003 and I began working as a Grant Writer in 2011. In the last 13 years, I have secured $32.6 million in government contracts and $1.3 million in private funding for various nonprofit programs through the formal grant application process, an additional $2.2 million at formal fundraising events, and $837,000 through fundraising campaigns.

Grant Writing Track Record

I have developed successful proposals for a wide range of funders, from city, state, and federal government agencies, to private foundations, local civic organizations, and corporate donors.

I have submitted over 30 state and federal grant proposals to government agencies with complex application processes, securing multimillion-dollar contracts in early childhood education, foster care, family supportive/preventive services, juvenile justice, and immigration services.

My successful proposals have also included programs in special education, workforce development, leadership development, nutrition education, arts programming, learning technologies, foster care and adoption services, youth development, support for individuals with developmental disabilities, housing development, and emergency relief.
