As an operations consultant, I have helped organizations implement software solutions, streamline procedures, update operational manuals, upgrade human resources tools, and assist in hiring staff.
As an employee, my work centered around learning the big picture by being involved in many details. As technology advanced, I kept my organizations moving forward by finding ways to make them more efficient. I led the way to more sophisticated websites, databases, and grant processes. I spearheaded the overhaul of human resources that brought the organization into compliance with state and federal laws and provided much-needed clarity to the staff and management. After decades of working for two small non-profits in multiple roles, I now use that experience to strengthen other organizations through consulting.
One love of mine is software. Not just any software, but software that enhances work and allows staff more time to focus on their mission. I have researched software solutions for my client’s specific needs and implemented those solutions when requested, such as grant tracking, time and attendance, customer relationship management database, client management, case management, and volunteer management. During my investigation of volunteer management solutions for a food pantry, I discovered Better Impact. It was hands down the best one out there at an affordable price. I have had the honor of helping several different kinds of organizations implement Better Impact.
I would love to help your organization. My clients have commented on how I listen to them, learn from them, and then brainstorm ways to make improvements—all without ego-investment. My system-wide thinking helps organizations work smarter, not harder, and frees them to focus on their mission.
