Whitecap Consulting Maine

I am a nationally-accredited public relations professional, cultural anthropologist, and author who applies theories of organizational culture, social change, and learning to the challenges faced by non-profit organizations in achieving their mission-driven goals.

A graduate of Smith College and the University of California-Davis, I have worked with non-profit organizations, public and independent K-12 schools, post-secondary schools, and museums since 1996 in Maine, Washington State, New Hampshire, and California. My role has spanned marketing & communications director (current), teacher, program manager, instructional design consultant, and curator.
