I have had the good fortune to work with more than a thousand nonprofits in my career, helping them make sound technology decisions to work more efficiently, raise more funds, and achieve their long term strategic goals. I started with one of the pioneering firms in this industry, Master Systems, which developed fundraising and fund accounting systems for very large nonprofits such as Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Stanford Children’s Hospital, and St. John’s University. That firm was ultimately acquired by Blackbaud, where I spent 17 years working with nonprofits and educational institutions of all sizes & shapes.
I am enlivened and fascinated by the work non-profits undertake, and make my first priority the all-important charge of learning each organization’s unique story, history, aspirations and challenges. My goal is to fully understand what you are trying to achieve, and, relying on the awesome team here at Heller Consulting, to design a service that gets you as close to that goal as possible. And there’s no harm in having a little fun along the way!
I have a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Ohio University.
