Custom Solutions, Rooted in Expertise

“What’s really unique about CauseMic is that they don’t have a one-size fits all approach. They really roll up their sleeves and get under the hood to understand all of the nuances of an organization.

They understand the players, get to know your mission, the internal constraints with regards your budget, people, or board of directors, and then they think strategically about what the right-size solutions are for your organization.”

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Each and every day, our clients roll up their sleeves and get to work solving big challenges that face us all. While these folks are heroes and are making an undeniable impact, it’s important to remember we all have a role to play in making the world better.

At CauseMic, we want to live in a more just and equitable society, and are committed to playing our part in its transformation. After all, it’s part of our foundation and current state – our team is made up of individuals from different ethnicities, genders, sexualities, religious beliefs, nationalities, physical abilities, and more.

We are made better by diverse perspectives which is why we need folks around us with diverse experiences. We also believe that success is not final, and continue to seek ways to invest in ourselves and our clients to build a more just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive world. To do so certainly leads to better creativity and innovation, but importantly, it leads to folks living more fulfilled lives.

With three Salesforce certifications, and over a decade of experience translating technology for nonprofits, I will help your organization's technology adoption succeed with flying colors. When I’m not training nonprofit leaders in CRM or strategizing the best solution for a given mission, I’m listening to podcasts, reading, or biking.

Copywriter

I take the axe to corporate-y buzzwords and brand ego because people deserve simple conversation that gets to the point and puts them first. I’ve snapped a lot of pencil tips helping causes reach for the stars. But my favorite challenge is developing the voice for a mission that people can relate to, feel excited to support, and are ready to follow wherever it goes.

Blooper reel: One night while on an unexpectedly bumpy flight, I stumbled and rolled out the open door at the tail end of the plane. I had a parachute, but bouncing my way out and getting my legs tangled in the risers wasn’t part of the plan. My platoon found it hilarious.
