I have a passion for helping nonprofits and small businesses of all kinds make a difference in their community through fundraising. It has been my goal to develop Fox Creek Fundraising into a knowledgeable and well-connected company that takes the time necessary to build relationships with clients in order to fully understand their needs.

I consider it a privilege to collaborate with a variety of leaders. I provide guidance to the forward-focused leaders who already know where they’re going as well as the leaders who are looking for support as they find their own path within a community. I build long-lasting and fruitful relationships with my clients through cultivated intuition and my genuine interest in others. Fox Creek Fundraising creates opportunities for people every day, and I would love to establish an innovative and successful vision for you.
