Consciously communicating, whether through conversation, writing, or public positioning, requires you to embrace authenticity.


     Throw away pretense. 

     Throw away the hard sale. 

     Throw away the facade.

     Begin to appreciate your clients and your employees as human beings and not profit centers. Find your commonalities and support those through your interactions and how you show up for them.

     KavCom's communications services will support your journey with specialized consulting, grant writing; blog, marketing and article content; marketing and public relations guidance; workshops; and strategic planning. Think of KavCom as a growth strategy organization for any business or nonprofit focused on creating good in the world.

What would you say to the question, "What is one thing you LOVE to do?" I have an easy answer: Writing. I started my career as a professional journalist in newspaper, radio and television. I've been the editor/publisher of four healthcare magazines, have published my own book, and ghost written books for several others. In 2002, I won a national award for my magazine Assisted Living Success.

My writing is measurably effective. If you want the content on your website to pull in potential clients, I'm your woman. I write blogs, research material, political speeches, press releases, corporate communications, newsletters, and just about any type of content you can imagine. Scriptwriting is also something in which I have excelled. As a producer of videos, audiobooks, podcasts, and films, I'm able to be especially creative with scripts.

And last, but not least, GRANTWRITING is not something everyone can do well. Yet, I have secured more than $3 million in Federal, State, Corporate, and Foundation grant funding. My grant proposals have a 75% success rate and I continue to write grant proposals for colleagues and clients each year.

My roles in higher education organizations and small to very large health and human services nonprofits afforded me additional education and training that benefit my clients. I studied fundraising at the Institute for Charitable Giving, while gaining comprehensive grant writing skills. Having worked directly with boards, and serving on nonprofit boards, I'm able to train boards to develop strategic plans, understand governance and expand their grasp of fundraising.  Beyond consulting and training for nonprofits, I also project manage any and every kind of fundraising event, including capital campaigns. 

My newest area of interest is in ESOP. These employee-owned companies are ready for the application of Conscious Capitalism.

Finally, I put my certified professional coaching skills to work with anyone who wants to feel less overwhelmed by stressful business cultures, or wants to be able to improve their on-camera media deliveries and presentations to groups.

I heighten brand awareness, develop growth capacity and prolifically turn out public relations and marketing content for both nonprofit and for-profit organizations. The scope of my work covers public positioning, any written content and fundraising.


During my long career, I've held executive roles in marketing and development for nonprofit organizations in Arizona, and several other states. I'm a published author, nationally acclaimed speaker and advocate for solopreneurs. Currently, I am a Certified Conscious Capitalism Consultant, Professional Certified Coach, licensed minister, and a fundraising partner with multiple organizations. 

For three years, I have been selected as an advanced session presenter for Arizona State University's non-profit management college, ASU Lodestar.


My monthly newsletter, “The Mindful Entrepreneur,” has a growing base of subscribers because it features articles from local and national thought leaders about mindfulness, profit and passion.
