Seventeen Years Inside an Organization

My career path brought me into my first nonprofit job way back in the late 90’s when the first wave of business technology burst on the scene. I was entranced. Many hours of self-directed learning time were spent figuring things out on my own, and then teaching others inside my organization.

As the resident accidental techie in my organization, I was an innovator. I also woke up in a cold sweat, worrying that I would make a mistake that might bring problems to my organization (or worse, my own career). I was making it up as I went along, because there were no trusted resources for me to turn to. Sound familiar?

Ten Years Serving Nonprofit Clients

In late 2007, I joined several business partners and opened the doors to Firefly Partners – a strategic digital marketing agency for nonprofits. As Vice President, I created the initial systems, processes and client-focused culture, and directed a team of twenty designers, developers and strategists to deliver websites, campaign strategies, and optimization services on dozens of platforms.

I’ve seen it all, and I’ve figured out the secrets to make your tech work for you (and not the other way around).

Working with Maureen turned what I had envisioned would be a nightmare into nothing short of a dream! Her engaging personality, stellar facilitation skills, and techie know-how put us in a great place to move forward in choosing a new donor system for our organization. I can’t recommend Maureen highly enough to other nonprofits who are looking to become smarter and more agile with their technology.”
