Better Leaders. Better Teams.

Increasing the impact of Nonprofit Leaders and their teams. Let's talk.

Hi, I'm Elly.

I support nonprofit leaders to develop their leadership skills and build teams that work together to fulfill the mission of their organization.

Are you:

  • a purpose-driven leader who wants to inspire your team?
  • so dedicated, that you sometimes forget to take care of yourself?
  • dreading challenging conversations with staff?
  • feeling confused about how to prioritize different demands?
  • wanting to stay focused in spite of all the day-to-day distractions and emergencies?

If you answered "yes" to any of these, I can help. With 25+ years of experience in nonprofits and delight supporting leaders in their professional development, I understand the challenges you face, how to engage your team to work together and fulfill the mission of your organization.

Through coaching conversations, I help you gain clarity and confidence around being a leader, building a team, and living your purpose.

Transformed as a Leader

“Working with Elly has really transformed me as a leader and as an individual! She does a wonderful job helping me to ask the right questions, giving me tools to help me to discern the answers, and brainstorming practical ways to incorporate these ideas into my everyday work life. What a gift she is to me!”

Sofia Barbato

Director of Supportive Services, Foundation Communities, Austin

Path to Grow Professionally

"Before meeting with Elly, my work was consuming. I was working hard, but not in directions that nurtured my commitments and passions. In my conversations with Elly, I discovered a path to grow and develop professionally, while preserving time, energy, and love for being a husband and a father. Elly asked powerful questions and listened with such care. I now have the presence of mind to be in partnership with my wife as our young son grows by leaps and bounds."

Principal, Kabele School, Austin

Organizational Culture

Does your organization want to take its performance to the next level? Work on a shared vision, a culture of trust, or explore assumptions and strategies?

We work in a longer trajectory to reinforce systems that support learning, leverage everyone’s unique expertise, and develop solutions that inspire team mastery. Fun, exciting, and profoundly meaningful.
