Your Data Works! Independent Blackbaud Raiser's Edge Consulting

My Approach

I love Raiser's Edge and I know it through and through. You know your organization, you know what you want your database to give you. Between the two of us, we can lower your stress levels and improve your operational efficiency. We'll have a real conversation, and I'll help you find real solutions.

My Story

Since 1998, I've been using Raiser's Edge to help non-profits accomplish more. With experience in educational organizations, museums, theatres, and many other non-profits, I have the experience to help you use Raiser's Edge to make the most of the relationships you rely on.

Who makes sure Your Data Works?

Your non-profit organization is on a mission. So am I here to help you accomplish yours.

Owner, Your Data Works!

Having worked with a variety of non-profit organizations, with a wide range of sizes and styles, I am able to mold Blackbaud Raiser's Edge to best support your development team's needs.

You know how important it is to thank donors appropriately and in a timely manner. You know how critical it is to know what is happening with your fundraising at all times. If your database is tangled, or you have trouble accessing the information you need — I can help.

With over 20 years of Raiser's Edge experience, I can

  • Clean up your data, virtually or on-site
  • Write custom procedures so that your data stays clean
  • Provide staff training
  • Step in temporarily as a staff person to provide extra support after an event or to fill an open position
  • Set up documents for mail merge

  • and more
