Did you know that more than ten percent of the United States workforce is employed in the nonprofit sector? We are the country’s third largest workforce!

And more than 85 percent of women in the United States are mothers.

So if you’re working for a nonprofit, and you’re a mom… you’re not alone!

But sometimes it feels that way, right?

Work can be stressful and isolating. Mothering can be stressful and isolating.

We’re in this together, and it’s my hope that this website will help connect the dots for you, whether I’m writing about helping your nonprofit to thrive, or thriving as a mom. 

You'll discover that many of my posts are about building your confidence. I'm grateful that some of my posts and tutorials have been shared by nonprofit and fundraising trainers across the United States and beyond. My aim is to help you: 

  • Write fundraising materials more quickly, with less pain and suffering

  • Become healthier at work (and home) -- emotionally and physically

  • Discover new ideas and tools to boost your productivity and ability to care for yourself and your family
