I'm a seasoned proposal writer, with over 16 years of experience in the field. My scope of expertise is far reaching, with success in the areas of art, health care, workforce development, secondary and higher education, environmental, and integrative medicine. I've procured government, corporate, and foundation grants. I view myself as an architect of ideas and words, one who takes the proposal writing process from the conceptual to the concrete. Whether I am working with one individual or a large, cross-disciplinary, collaborative team, my approach is the same. I help to articulate the statement of need, vision, program development, goals, objectives, and budget (if requested) and transform all of this into a well written, compelling proposal. I thrive on this process, and I have been told I have a “gift” for doing this type of work. Additionally, I am detail-oriented, adhere to deadlines, exhibit grace under fire, and appreciate a good sense of humor.
