I care about the mission and people. It is that simple. I care about helping nonprofits be able to deliver on their missions, whether that means working to save the environment, help homeless children, or bring art to the community. And I am uniquely positioned to be able to help! I am president of Phil-Com, LLC, a consulting and training company that offers services to nonprofits and small businesses.
I have twenty years of experience in fundraising and sales. I hold a Master of Science in Management (MSM) with a concentration in Non-Profit Leadership, a graduate Certificate in Teaching & Learning (CTL), and am a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE). In 2010 I was certified in Disaster Public Relations and In-Kind Donations with the American Red Cross.
I serve on the Board of Directors of the Association of Fundraising Professionals Southwest Florida Chapter. I have worked on leadership teams for organizations with budgets from $1 million to $15 million, in fundraising, public relations, and volunteer recruitment since 2006. I have experience in annual campaigns, grant writing, capital campaigns, strategic planning, development planning,board recruitment and training, prospect identification and screening,moves management, database RFPs and implementations, in-kind donations,event planning and management, volunteer recruitment and management, third-party fundraising, case statements, gift acceptance policies,naming opportunities, public relations, and marketing materials. I have in-depth experience with analyzing gift data and trends and using the resulting information to plan future activities.

Prior to working in nonprofits I was a sales director for 10 years, helping to match companies with programs and services that improved their operational efficiency and improved market share.
