Founder & Advisor

Alice helps nonprofit organizations find creative, people-oriented solutions to complex staffing, strategy and technology problems.

Alice co-founded Jackson River back in 2008 out of the belief that the nonprofit sector deserves access to powerful, corporate-scale technologies. By the numbers, she counts 20+ years working exclusively with nonprofits; 100+ causes assisted; and too many RFP processes to count.

In her years working with mission-driven organizations, she has provided executive coaching, organization development, process design, and staffing strategy to nonprofit leaders across the sector. Alice is an expert in organizational and change, digital transformation, and leadership development. Her particular gift lies in identifying the emotional intelligence and wisdom within nonprofits and offering a holistic approach to making organizational change. Alice’s expertise lies in the application of emerging digital technology for nonprofits and lead nonprofits in building effective digital teams.

While remaining an advisor to Jackson River, Alice is continuing her consulting practice with her business partner Misty McLaughlin under their new company Cause Craft Consulting which they founded in the fall of 2018.

 

You have to focus on building a culture. You hire well, you create mini-teams so everyone is working deeply and collaboratively with each other, you use video chat and a lot of Slack, and you be as honest and transparent as you can. I tell people to bring their whole selves to work. I don’t really buy into this work/life balance concept so much, because you work as part of your life, your life includes your work. You want to be able to all the things you do: you’re writing code, you’re on client calls, you’re driving to soccer practice, you’re getting dinner on the table, you’re walking the dog – all of those you want to do well and fully and authentically.

How Can We Help?

We’d like to catalyze support for your cause.
