Community Engagement & Building Your Tribe
As a community engagement expert, I continue to champion causes that empower community members with information and engagement to grow new and authentic leadership among stakeholders, partners and city officials. Communications is a very serious element to the success and longevity for change and quality of life concerns. We can only thrive when we respect one another and build communities that reflect respect and responsibility through democracy. We must respect self and take responsibility for self, as well as build community initiatives for safety, health, social, and inclusion; where "everyone belongs." It is a human right to have access to information. Did you know this? According to the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, "democracy can only thrive with an informed and engaged community." Let's thrive together!
Transformational Growth in Community
As an accomplished administrator of public and private sector initiatives for transformational growth, I demonstrate my abilities in creating effective communications to engage people. I love consulting others on how to do it with my written community engagement blueprint.
For community development to flourish, systems must be in place to develop methods for collaboration, a space for community champions, and organizational growth. I enjoy connecting diverse organizations by finding commonalities for people to work together.
My experience in both business and education provides me the expertise to authentically evaluate programs, write impact reports, manage grant funding, and communicate to leadership teams’ implementation plans, sustainability and anticipated growth. Coaching can include public speaking and writing too. I understand the importance to create meaningful relationships, and I am known as a highly organized, integrative strategic thinker. I love to share this skillset with others and teach others how to be as well. Through my project management work, I have a proven track record as a motivating, results oriented leader. My passion is highlighted in my exceptional team building skills, known for effective utilization of talent and resources towards organizational goals. My personal and professional philosophy is TEAM - Together Everyone Achieves More.
