Describe an average day for you. 

Unique. Fast-Paced. Enjoyable.

Why are you passionate about RevJen’s work?

My passion was initially sparked by my participation in the very first FUEL cohort. I was impressed by both the depth and simplicity of the workshop. As a development professional, being able to apply the RevJen framework to my own work has been empowering, and I know it will have a similar impact on other leaders, organizations and the nonprofit sector at-large.

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

Removing barriers to sustainable capital for high-impact organizations and their leaders.
