Why do you think it’s important for your business or organization to support nonprofits and community organizations in Southeast Michigan and what kind of positive impact do you think your work could have?
I was introduced to the world of philanthropy early in my corporate career by a mentor that was focused on my complete professional development, as I prepared for leadership opportunities. As a volunteer and board member over the last 30+ years, I have leveraged my functional expertise and leadership skills to serve in various roles across multiple nonprofits. Along the way, I learned that some of the practices, principles, processes, and strategies that are normalized in Corporate America are not standard across nonprofit organizations. NLA was founded on the premise that in my “second act” as an entrepreneur, I would combine my passion with the lessons learned from “my seat at the executive table”. NLA is committed to collaborating with nonprofit leaders to support the transformation of their organizations – leveraging a client-centered, results oriented, non-traditional approach to creating sustainable operations (strategy, infrastructure, board development) while accelerating fund development growth.
