Philanthropy done with intentional focus, strategic thinking, and careful planning can achieve powerful results. I can help you get there.

I've worked with foundations, family offices, individuals, and families across the country to help them achieve ambitious social impact goals for over 15 years. 

My work is deeply customized to fit each client's needs. Collaborating closely and with discretion, I listen carefully to what they want to achieve and help them craft tailored, effective strategies.


Let's discuss how I might be able to help you magnify the impact of your philanthropy. 


  • Over 15 years of strategy consulting experience, both as an independent consultant and as a Director at FSG, where I led and participated in numerous foundation client engagements in the US and Europe.

  • Experience with all types of foundations (private, community, & corporate), as well as individuals and families with multiple generations

  • ​MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business, and a Participant in its Public Management Program

  • With Mark Kramer, led FSG’s research on the early landscape of impact investing by foundations and published findings in several reports (Aggregating Impact: A Funder’s Guide to Mission Investment Intermediaries; Compounding Impact: Mission Investing by US Foundations; “The Power of Mission Investing,” Stanford Social Innovation Review).
