From comprehensive strategic planning to customized retreats, we love to help teams step away from the daily grind to dream big and move forward with shared vision. We are skilled at facilitating in both virtual and in-person contexts. We ensure sessions are productive and refreshing, and create intentional spaces for people with different communications styles to fully participate.

We're also experts at developing programs and projects. If you're looking to launch something new, we can work with you step-by-step — planning, budgeting, fundraising, marketing, community engagement, logistics, evaluation — to transform ideas into reality. We tailor thoughtful processes that lead to strong relationships and deep impact.

We tell your organization's story through clear and compelling messaging, carefully crafted for each audience and platform. We know the languages of fundraising, marketing, and internal/external communications, and will make sure your story resonates with your target audience. We listen to stakeholders, synthesize complex information, and ensure that your messaging aligns with your mission and work.

We like to "show" not just "tell," so we create attractive materials that are functional and elevate your mission. Our specialty is conveying content with clarity, user-friendliness, and style.


Our work is grounded in antiracism, gender equity, accessibility, and radical inclusion.


And joy, always joy.

“Thanks so much for 'getting' us, for asking the right questions, assembling the right stakeholders, and helping us craft a clear message. It is rare to engage a consultant who produces a final product that satisfies everyone ... It was simply a joy to work with you.”
