My Mission

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. It is indeed the only thing that ever has.”   —Margaret Mead

I have always defined “professional success” as the sweet spot between doing good – leaving the world, or at least one’s small corner of it, better than we found it...and doing well – creating capital that enriches one’s internal life while also “making a living.”

I’ve been rewarded with an abundance of opportunity to “do good and do well” throughout my professional life in Maine, as a political activist and strategist, policy advocate and lobbyist, State House staffer and non-profit leader, and as an organizational and philanthropic consultant.

The chapters of my professional life have been bridged by leaps of faith, choosing the path that ignites my passion, seizing the challenge that feels just a bit beyond reach, continually learning, and applying what I’ve learned in innovative ways and in new settings. 

As I look ahead, I want my next leap to be the act of sharing. I want to contribute to the success of our next generation of leaders in the political, non-profit, and entrepreneurial sectors in Maine who are bringing their talent, optimism, vision, and promise to our great state.

If you are a non-profit or business leader in Maine, I want to help you “do good and do well” by cultivating the skills, resources, and capacity you need to be successful and propel your organization into the future. 

Let’s Talk!

If you want to take your leadership skills to the next level as you “do well” professionally and “do good” in the world, email Joanne or call 207-671-7221
