In 2004, I suddenly found myself the single-parent of three young children. Having been steeped in the nonprofit social service world since high school and facing dramatic transitions in our family, it became clear that I needed to find a way to return to work to support my family, and also be present in my children’s lives. With the support of a wonderful network colleagues, and the experience of having worked both in the program and development arenas, NewBloomz was born.
I began consulting with nonprofit organizations providing programatic infrastructure, outcome measurement tools, prospect research, grant development, and donor reports. In addition, I facilitated workshops and training for boards and staff most often in the area of vision, mission, and strategic planning. For nearly 8 years, NewBloomz helped small to mid-sized organizations find new possibilities.
As my company developed, so did I, and so did my family. I relocated, married again, and had two more children. With five children, three teens and two toddlers, NewBloomz took a sabbatical for a few years, only serving a few clients. A period of great change, loss, grief, rebirth, and growth occurred for me personally during this time. After finding my own healing and deep learning, I became a Grief Specialist, and began working with clients experiencing their own grief and loss. I continue to offer grief and loss work through The Greater Mercy Foundation.
Currently, NewBloomz works with entrepreneurs, nonprofits, for-profits, and community organizations and partnerships. NewBloomz provides personal, professional, and community development in order that we might move our work in the world into the new paradigm. My specialty is helping individuals, businesses, and community organizations imagine and visualize possibilities, establish important partnerships, and develop infrastructures.
Currently, I am the sole proprietor of NewBlooomz. However, my work would not be possible or nearly as successful and enjoyable without the critical partnerships of fellow colleagues and organizations that I am grateful to work with on a regular basis.
Thank you for you interest in NewBloomz, and I hope you will find what you are looking for here. If you have questions or want to learn more, please contact me.
