Work with me

Consider me a special projects director for hire. I support nonprofit executives to launch bold and future-oriented projects. Through facilitation, research, process design, and strategic advice, I help leaders answer important questions and helps organizations move forward in changing times.

My favourite clients are progressive organizations who work on social change at a systems level. I especially enjoy working with those who support the nonprofit sector more broadly, including foundations and funders, umbrella organizations, volunteer centres, educators, and government.

Clients like me because I’m smart, agile, independent, and responsive. I help them take sticky projects off the corner of their desks, and provide insight on the future of the nonprofit sector.

I do work under the name 27 Shift Consulting. 27 Shift is based in Vancouver, BC, and works with clients across North America. When a project could benefit from additional minds, I bring on other independent folk to deliver results.
