Altimeter will help your path be more straight and your mission more readily achievable.


"My passion for helping others was ignited as a student at the University of Kansas, when I led a student group that raised $29,000 for the local chapter of the United Way. Natural abilities and driven personality led to other non-profit positions over the span of two decades and included organizing massive numbers of volunteers for walks, festivals, bike rides and runs.

In 2016, I joined Network for Good as an Expert Fundraising Coach. I work with a myriad of different organizations to effectively help them chart a course for greater success. I am also passionate about connecting and engaging people with one-another and strengthening community, which has led me to coordinating different community events, like the Creator Cafe.

I am the mother of three amazing children; my youngest on the autism spectrum. I frequently volunteer in the community, serve on multiple committees at my church, a broadway-style belter who loves to sing, and am an occasional public speaker specializing in proactive, inclusive communication techniques."
