Connie mediates conflicts inhibiting nonprofit success. Connie has a unique perspective of nonprofits: as an Executive Director of a nonprofit, a lawyer to nonprofits, a member of the Board of Directors, and as a mediator for nonprofit conflicts.  She has mediated serious disputes between board members, staff members, and partner nonprofits. As a manager of a small legal aid firm with responsibilities for financial, grant, HR, board management and legal services delivery operations, she has lived the inside role of challenge-juggling.  As a commercial lawyer at Orr & Reno for troubled and successful organizations alike, the problem-solving role was a natural springboard into mediating disputes toward resolution.

Connie is a mediator serving parties privately, and for the American Arbitration Association, National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals, NH Probate, Superior, Business and the United States District Courts, the NH Agricultural Mediation Panel and other organizations in New England.  Note that she does not provide legal advice as mediator of disputes.  For more about Connie, visit
