When you love what you do, can you really call it a job? My work is my vocation, my passion and the realization of a childhood dream. I’ve wanted to be a nonprofit professional for almost as long as I can remember. I am also a dyed-in-the-wool entrepreneur. These two, sometimes divergent interests, have found a happy marriage in my consulting company .orgSource and my more recent, and deeper dive, into supporting association leaders, .orgCommunity.

The association space is my playing field. It gives me the opportunity to exercise skills that come naturally such as resolving complex problems, identifying challenges and opportunities, and launching new ventures. It’s also where I’ve learned to approach the unknown with enthusiasm and to embrace being an innovator and an agent of change.

The following skills and experiences have made me the person I am today and will continue to shape my future:

  • 20 plus years as a nonprofit leader and consultant to over 200 organizations, guiding them toward strategic goals, improved efficiency, and the alignment of IT resources
  • Founder and CEO of .orgSource, helping hundreds of associations develop technological solutions
  • Co-founder of .orgCommunity, offering unique networking, professional development and relationship building experiences to association professionals and their corporate partners
  • Early and ongoing adopter of technology, from creating one of the first association websites to the cloud and whatever is beyond the horizon
  • Recipient of Association Forum’s 2010 John C. Thiel Distinguished Service Award
  • Speaker, writer, and promoter
  • Colleague, mentor, and friend to the outstanding people I’ve known throughout my career

Steve Jobs said, “The people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” Since the day I first stuck a toe into the workplace, I’ve taken that advice seriously. I strive to live, breathe and think like an entrepreneur and to bring that level of commitment to my consulting clients at .orgSource and the association leaders in .orgCommunity.

I’ve been riding the cutting-edge of technology and loving it, for as long as I can remember. .orgCommunity is the sixth company that I have watched grow from the ground up. My dream of being a software/technology entrepreneur has found a home in the association space. Supporting my nonprofit consulting clients and colleagues to successfully integrate all things electronic into their business models rewards me in countless ways.

The following experiences and skills have contributed to my ability to guide other professionals as they position their organizations for success in a challenging future:

  • 20 plus years of helping associations to develop technology solutions that are strategic, results-oriented and effective
  • Partner in .orgSource, supporting hundreds of associations in the implementation of technological solutions
  • Co-founder of .orgCommunity, offering unique networking, professional development and relationship building experiences to association professionals and their corporate partners
  • Enthusiastic volunteer for a myriad of association and nonprofit organizations
  • Speaker, writer, promoter
  • Futurist, problem-solver, collaborator
  • Advocate for all things association
