The end result is the articulation of the value of an organization’s work and programs that is grounded in a financial model and communicated in a plan that makes a compelling case for support.

She holds a BA in English and american literature from Harvard University and a MBA with a concentration in nonprofit management from the Yale School of Management.
“Most of us at TDC cut our teeth at nonprofits. We have the on-the-ground experience to see the world from our clients’ perspective, and recognize that nonprofit leaders are often navigating complex situations that would stymie even the most seasoned business professional.”
