Describe an average day for you. 

Learning. Moving. Contributing.

Why are you passionate about RevJen’s work?

Because while nonprofit leaders and organizations change the world every day, RevJen can help them optimize their impact through revenue maximization and leadership development. Everybody can sleep better at night!

If you could wave a magic wand and change one thing about the nonprofit sector, what would it be? 

That every nonprofit could make investments in revenue generation and leadership development…investments that most for-profit organizations take for granted.

Finish this sentence: “On Saturday mornings you can usually find me…”

Skipping the caffeine - doing yoga and walking the dog for energy before heading to the library to feed my reading compulsion.
