Biography

After over 25 years of providing direct services and overseeing programs and organizations dedicated to serving the underserved (especially families), I moved into positions focused on efforts to positively transform the entire social sector (philanthropy, nonprofits and social enterprises). This focus on transformational change began while I was at Charity Navigator. While there I undertook efforts to move their ratings of charities from a primary emphasis on overhead, toward a focus on the quality of results reporting, especially outcomes.

Then with Algorhythm and Greater Good Associates, I continued this work by helping nonprofit and for profit impact organizations to manage and measure what matters most to meet their mission (measurable, positive outcomes), as well as to improve their overall performance. I was also an active speaker, teacher and writer on a wide ranges of issues of concern to the social sector and those who support it.

Today, at The CTC Academy, I have returned to my roots – serving children in need and their families. CTC Academy provides educational and therapeutic services for multiply disabled children with developmental and physical challenges. A multi-sensory approach is utilized in a nurturing and caring environment to enrich the lives of students and maximize their potential while lending support to their families. As Executive Director I am responsible for carrying out the strategic priorities established by the Board of Directors and providing leadership, vision and direction for The CTC Academy.
