It's critical to know what to say and how to say it to maintain a strong brand. I lead message development processes to pinpoint the story you want to tell. Once we've got the messages we can develop marketing and public relations strategies and collateral (I love to write anything). You shine as a thought leader.
If work is moving too fast, a team is too lean, there is a lack of work protocol or process, regular communications routines are lacking, or a sense that order is missing, that's where I come in. Through needs assessments and conversations, creating work plans and regular communications, streamlining work and identifying who's doing what, I help clarify things. I'm your process person!
Creating authentic networks shifts our thinking from having one leader or organization in charge to having a shared approach to producing change together. Rather than posturing for power, network building is about promoting the change we all seek. Together we can map key audiences and leaders who should be part of your work, and connect with them.

Early childhood education, K-12 public policy, nature-based and outdoor learning, healthy school food, mindfulness for kids, movement and play. I have content expertise in these areas as well as an understanding of who the leaders are here and how they connect.
Social Media Coaching
Social media is supposed to be easy for "anyone" to pick up, right? Not exactly. I coach individuals and teams on how to think in a network connected way to "make your own luck" that fosters visibility and develops relationships. And I cover the basics of advanced use of select social media platforms.
Workshops and Facilitation
I offer training on project management skills and how to maximize social media, and workshops for parents on outdoor learning for kids. I facilitate meetings to kick off partnerships or leadership strategy sessions. Whatever I'm doing, it's engaging, hands-on, and mindful.
