Experience Working with Non-Profits
Chris has over twenty years’ experience working with and also running successful non-profits.
The organization she ran from its early start-up days she also guided to become one of the top affiliates in the country in a few short years. She has been both staff, as project coordinator and executive director of a nonprofit, as well as Board member and committee chair of another nonprofit organization, helping to raise 6 million dollars for their Capital Campaign to renovate their new headquarters.
In addition, she has planned and managed many fund-raisers for a wide variety of nonprofits and political organizations from The Coalition to end homelessness to the Traumatic Brain Injury Association. She presently runs a weekly workshop that she created for a Hartford-area prison called “Life Reinvention” to help inmates prepare for reentry once they are released.
Fees are project based and may be presented after initial discovery and needs assessment.
