    I'm a Development Consultant and writer with over 17 years experience in: - Grants/Proposals writing - Grant Research and Prospecting - Nonprofit Annual Report Writing - Organizational Profiles - Project Reports - Concept Notes - Letters of Inquiry - Expression of Interest - Nonprofit fundraising - Nonprofit Startup Consulting - Planning Nonprofit Programs - Content Writing: Articles, speeches, personal statements, recommendation letters, white papers, business case, short stories - Editing and Proofreading My qualifications include a B.Sc in Sociology and an M.Sc in Development Studies. I have also taken courses in Risk Management, Research Methods, Creative writing and Project Management. I wrote my first solo grant proposal in 2009 and have since written several proposals, with excellent results. I have received funding for several projects by Nonprofit organizations as well as the Ministries, Departments and Agencies where I worked in the past, due to successful proposals which I wrote either independently or as part of a team. I am really good at writing and reviewing Letters of Inquiry, responding to Requests For Proposals, and tailoring grant proposals to the format provided, with great attention to detail. The key thing here is to ensure that the capabilities of the organization applying are expertly presented. This includes an interesting and catchy overview, details of similar work done, an interpretation of the need to be addressed, details of how we would address that need within a specified budget, as well as an implementation or delivery plan with timelines. I particularly enjoy report writing and I can put together a really good Annual Report or Project Report for your organization, showcasing the impact of the work you're doing to donors and funders. I would like the opportunity to offer value to your organization with my unique skills. I look forward to working with you on your projects!

    As a former academic, I excel in the area of writing and research. My most recent success is a federal grant for $4 million over two years. I have successfully written state, city, and federal grants ranging from $100,000 to $200,000. For two years, I worked for a nonprofit; I wrote 37 grants and state contract applications with 75% funded. I developed several programs, including a homeless program, back to school program (school supplies given to children in need), a coat drive, a program for kinship care support, and a coat drive. Recently I finished two contracts with HUD’s Tribal Office for reviewing grant applications for a new tribal housing project. I am also currently a reviewer for AmeriCorps. The reviewer experiences have given me a more rounded perspective on the grant application process. In addition to the grant writing experience, I also have grant management experience, which includes writing grant reports and following up with grantors. I was the president of a nonprofit county youth swim team and the co-founder of a nonprofit that helps families in need at Christmas. I also serve on two nonprofit boards, one for a new homeless program and a new domestic violence agency. My role on these boards is to provide organization and topical advice. I have conducted research, needs assessments, and writing grants for organizations such as Nurse-Family Partnership, early childhood education, mental health facilities, homelessness, a region-wide alliance on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, a County Department of Social Services, and a task force on domestic violence. My areas of expertise in sociology are gender, domestic violence, child maltreatment, family interactions, sexuality, and how people see themselves and others. My courses included but were not limited to these topics and criminology, sociology of childhood, social organizations and institutions, and law.

    I uncover and share stories that build strong, lasting and meaningful relationships between my clients and their communities. I value communications materials that are a pleasure to read and that inspire readers to action. I imbue this value in every project I undertake: an annual fundraising campaign that tells the story of how dancing changed the life of someone living with Parkinson's disease; a feature magazine article about how small-scale flower growers are bringing beauty into the world during a pandemic; a product-launch campaign that introduces fine furniture lovers to an eco-friendly leather alternative; and much more. When we work together, you streamline your process and rest assured that your message is in the hands of someone who cares deeply about all levels of its presentation. You gain consistency that directly leads to materials that entice, engage, and inspire.

    I worked in the nonprofit sector for over fifteen years, primarily for organizations serving individuals with disabilities. I am excited to use my expertise in writing grants, giving campaigns, presentations, policies and procedures manuals, newsletters, budgets, and strategic plans to help nonprofit organizations grow and thrive. As a former nonprofit program director and executive director, I have first hand experience drafting and implementing these documents in the organizations where I worked. I understand that nonprofit organizations never have enough time, staff, or dollars to accomplish all that needs to be done. Let me help you stretch all three by creating documents that can be used for a specific purpose or as templates that you can use repeatedly.

    The best writing is precise, concise, accurate, and accessible to a non-specialist. I am a native English speaker with extensive editing and writing experience. I am comfortable writing about anything in science or commerce, and specialize in the natural sciences, medicine, psychology, history, and the social sciences. Cryptocurrency has become a subspecialty of mine. I can edit and write about any topic. As a retired professor with a Ph.D., I have published over 70 papers. Forty of those papers have been cited at least 40 times! You can see all my work on Google Scholar, linked on my portfolio. For 15 years, I was an associate editor of "Systematic Biology", one of the highest impact journals in science. I guided many doctoral dissertations to successful completion and was head of admissions in my department. I have a strong record in writing proposals ​and have been awarded seven NSF grants. I have years of experience in teaching as well, with demonstrated success at primary, secondary, undergraduate and graduate levels. This experience has provided skills in explaining things to any targeted audience, from 5 year-olds to professors. Just because I am capable of writing highly complex technical stuff does not mean that I cannot communicate to a general audience. Please do not invite me to interview for fixed-price jobs. I prefer hourly rates so that I can offer you meticulous service, without rushing.

  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project. 
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain types of nonprofits, funding solutions, or geographic locations, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.
