Let's make it happen!

Hi! I'm Erin.

You may know me through music, but I'm also a business strategy advisor, project management consultant, and grant writer.

Since 2004, I've worked with some of the most recognizable brands in the world (like Coca-Cola, Caterpillar, and Clorox) on all sorts of projects (like new product introductions, ecommerce initiatives, greenfield construction, and the Olympics). I’ve served on nonprofit boards, led workshops, and moderated conference panels at the intersection of creativity, culture, commerce, and technology.

Large projects are exciting, but my heart and soul are much happier working with artists, entrepreneurs, and nonprofit founders bringing good things into the world. 

After hearing from so many creatives and entrepreneur friends about their frustrations

- getting projects off the ground
- mapping out the steps
- staying on schedule
- making a realistic budget
- securing resources and funding
- navigating unexpected twists
- finishing what they started
- and staying grounded and motivated along the way

I began drawing from my broad palette of corporate, nonprofit, entrepreneurial, artistic, somatic, and consulting experience to combine solid business methodology with heart-centered self-inquiry, to bring more clarity and accountability to the joyful pursuit of their dreams.

If you've got something in mind, I'd love to help you move it forward. Email me and let's set up a time to chat.



Strategy and Project Planning In a series of in-person or online sessions, we start with a Deep Dive exploration of your desires, resources, and timeline. We design a plan that's right-sized for your real life and follow up with regularly scheduled updates to keep you gracefully on track, making adjustments as you go. (It can be messy at first, that's cool. If it were crystal clear, it would probably be done already.)

Grant Prospecting and Grant Writing I research grants for artists and 501(c)(3) nonprofits, to find the most aligned funding opportunities. I write grant proposals for submission to grant-making foundations.

General Advisory I also advise on all of the above, if you want to pick my brain or have a brainstorming session.

    Well Aware Events and Strategy
    Advised on the launch of a for-profit sister company, ensuring nonprofit operations continued smoothly; My favorite example of how solid planning can save your ass before it's too late is when I was contracted to plan a gala event that was discovered through the planning process to be mis-aligned with strategic goals and available resources. Those resources were then re-directed to more important initiatives, saving the organization hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars. Then they became a finalist in Fast Companyʼs 2022 World Changing Ideas Awards!
