Hi I’m Julia!
Hi I’m Julia!

I’ve been working in and alongside nonprofits for two decades.

I’ve been a one person Development and Marketing Department, a volunteer, and a Board Member.

Having spent my career in the nonprofit and public sectors, I understand the specific obstacles that marketing and fundraising professionals face every day – isolation, wearing multiple hats, high expectations, and increasing responsibilities.

And – lucky for you – I’ve learned a few things along the way.

More specifically, what works – and what doesn’t – in nonprofit marketing.

  1. What is essential for success – and what can we ignore (or throw away for good).
  2. How to get your message to stand out from the rest.
  3. How to get people to believe in, and to become passionate about, your cause.

Do these sound like things you struggle with?

If you said a resounding YES, you are in good company.

With me as your expert guide, and a cohort of other nonprofits willing and eager to learn alongside you and support you – this is TOTALLY doable.

I promise!


"Your training (and subsequent webinars, tips, tools, and inspiring emails) were exceedingly helpful. I started in social media, and have moved on to more general marketing and individual donor management, but learning from you was absolutely crucial in my comms development and sticking to it in the nonprofit world. When I lead trainings at work, one of the first thought experiments is to establish urgency and importance with "what if the doors closed tomorrow?" Got it from you, and I love it."

- Brian K., Communications Director
