Hi, I’m Kelly.
I’m an experienced writer and planned giving professional who wants to help you achieve your goals.
Although I started out as an attorney, my desire to make a greater impact on the world led me to serve nonprofit organizations, primarily in healthcare. Throughout my life, however, writing has always been my greatest strength.
In all of my past positions, I composed and edited writing to be shared with clients, donors, prospects, volunteers, leadership, and other organizational stakeholders.
Over the past seven years in nonprofit, I also built and managed multi-million dollar planned giving programs, oversaw all forms of individual giving, and created meaningful relationships with donors whose stories will stay with me always.
As a planned giving fundraiser, I cultivated large portfolios of donors and secured seven-figure estate gift commitments, charitable gift annuities, and non-cash gifts. Once I became program director, I drew from my frontline experience to implement new initiatives that grew the planned gift pipeline while also generating bookable planned giving revenue.
Excellent persuasive writing and successful nonprofit development both require a fine balance of art and science. Using compelling narratives and proven, data-driven strategies, I can help you meet your goals and effectively communicate your value and needs to donors, leadership, and clients.
