Service Description

My services include grant research and writing services, program design, process improvement, online training, communications support, curriculum development and general writing/document creation services.

I'm effective at developing opportunities, resources and relationships to expand programs and services. Past grant awards include those from foundations, corporations and government agencies. In 2013, I coordinated 7 community organizations in developing $1.4 million Supportive Services for Veteran Families housing stability grant program; providing rapid rehousing and homelessness prevention for a projected 500 very low income veteran families. I also facilitated partnerships to create the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program, securing a $120,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Labor; delivering employment services and job training to 97 homeless veterans.

Prior experience includes leading an online medical transcription school for over two years, local adjunct teaching, curriculum development, live and online training, learning management system administration, technical and operational transitions, and nonprofit board service. In addition to a Masters degree in Management, I hold a Bachelors degree in Organizational Leadership and have 27 credit hours in elementary education. I won the first grant I attempted in 1998 from the State of Oklahoma to open a child development center and one year later won a second state grant to expand said center.
