Welcome To Ascend Advisors

  • Coaching

    I work with Executive Leaders in the nonprofit and small business space to help them strategize through challenging events and map-out internal process flows. I’m a confidential sounding board for Executive Leaders & Board Members-giving them a coveted space to vent, think, or simply ask questions.

  • Strategy & Facilitation

    I am working with a community library in Northeast Ohio to update their strategic plan for 2021-2023, celebrate their plan achievements and facilitating their annual executive team planning meeting.

  • Event Planning

    I just concluded the 11th Annual MyCom Youth Voice Awards, a celebration of those who promote a positive youth voice in our community, one of my absolute favorite events to manage. The event had almost 400 attendees, 20 youth voice award nominees, 10 winners, 5 arts performances, 4 video congratulations and 1 unbelievable Master of Ceremonies, Brandon Simmons of WKYC 3 Studios.

  • Nonprofit Business

    I had the privilege to teach and learn from the graduate students at Belmont University in the Masters of Nonprofit Leadership class as their Governance in Nonprofit Organizations instructor for Fall 2019. We read and discussed The Nonprofit Answer Book and the Best of Boards-both are fabulous resources for any nonprofit Board member or Executive Leader.

  • Fund Development & Communications

    I enjoy supporting relationship building between my clients and funders for mutual success. I just finished 2019 bringing in over half-a-million dollars in non-federal funding for and excited to celebrate with them. On to 2020!
