I'm director of Communications at VolunteerMatch
. Through #marcom, #nptech, #sm4sg and #contentstrategy I support the independent sector by helping to build bridges between individuals, nonprofit organizations, and businesses. My philosophy is that we're all interested in making a difference -- connecting with others is the key to boosting our impact and feeling fulfilled in the process.
At VolunteerMatch some recent projects include collaborations with companies like Johnson & Johnson, Newman's Own, UnitedHealth Group, Morgan Stanley, Target, Ben & Jerry's, and Pepsi; and nonprofits like American Red Cross and Taproot Foundation. I also launched the blogs EngagingVolunteers.org
to increase thought leadership around volunteer engagement at nonprofits and businesses.
I'm a frequent public speaker on these issues at places like SXSW, the Nonprofit Technology Conference, the National Conference on Volunteering and Service, and Netsquared events.
