Welcome to Next Steps! This site is an online portfolio featuring my resume, writing samples, and a few projects from various professional and volunteer activities. By profession, I have been a secondary English teacher, librarian and library administrator, and part-time accompanist and long time church musician.
After returning to Florida in 2008, I explored several new vocational paths: discerning a call to the Episcopal diaconate, serving as a college campus minister, developing funding and resources for a fledgling nonprofit arts organization, freelancing in digital content curation, and joining the administrative team of our local public TV and radio station. These very different paths have offered opportunities to develop expertise in:
- Event planning
- Building strong organizational teams
- Grant writing
- Developing community partnerships
- Creating online resource collections
- Digital publishing
As I explore my own Next Steps, I hope to continue to use these skills in nonprofit management and organizational leadership. Please contact me for further information. I look forward to hearing from you!
