                  Our Board should be more engaged.

              We have an outdated strategic plan.

              Our donor base must grow.

              Our brand is not visible.

              Development staff need training.

With over three decades of experience in major gift fundraising, campaign planning, board governance, and community partnerships, I know how to find custom solutions for unique challenges.

Let me help your staff and board leadership team identify and focus on what’s most important for your organization. 

Does any of this sound familiar?

Your privacy is important to me, and I promise not to share your information with third parties.

"A lot of people don't know

what to do to connect. Ann is a master connector. I am really glad she is writing a book on how to be a connector- important skills

we all need to learn.

I don't use this expression often: it's a "class act". Ann is a "class act". Everything she does is with such grace, beauty, and excellence.

She is worth knowing and following, and deserves every good thing said about her."

Jack Canfield -- California

Co-author, Chicken Soup for the Soul® Series and Author The Success Principles™

"Ann answers questions you didn’t even know you had. She is a cheerleader with valedictorian brains, a fundraiser with board member insights, and a friend with mentor instincts. She’s funny, she’s fresh, she’s energetic, she’s wise. She’s the tonic you need after and during a crisis. She not only knows how to read people, she also makes every single one feel cared for. Ann’s got a young soul with old soul insights."

Tim Federle -- New York

Disney's High School Musical Series

"Ann’s calling card is her personality: unpretentious, kind, courteous, powerful, generous, imaginative and curious. In her work, she is discerning, tireless and practical. She has a sophisticated world view and yet is totally comfortable in all circles. The best compliment I can give Ann is that she is both real and good… as a person, absolutely, and in all that she does, without equivocation."

"I have had the good fortune to see Ann in action as the world’s best connector. She is fearless in building relationships. And she is always teaching; it's her nature because serving is very

important to her. 

Ann's passion, energy, and vision always make big things happen. Everyone who knows Ann appreciates her commitment to leadership. She has unstoppable talent and great spirit."
