A natural connector and collaborator, Karen drives successful outcomes through community development and fundraising as a nonprofit professional.  Karen raised more than $500,000 as the community campaign director to support a $5 million capital campaign.   Her collective work has resulted in well over $2 million in contributions through direct donor cultiavation and large fundraising events, and has engaged thousands of volunteers in support of nonprofit and community initiatives.   

Starfish Collaborative delivers consultant services that support and catalyze nonprofit work to enable organizations to better connect to their public, develop and steward critical relationships and succeed in sustainably implementing their mission. 

The role between consultant and nonprofit is, itself, a compassionate partnership. It begins with listening, to capture a deep understanding of your organization and your mission. This is the foundation with which we develop a customized, appropriate and sustainable framework to enable you to deliver your mission, achieve your objectives, enhance your impact and tell your story. This is what we do well. This is the work that ignites us.
