Since I was young I have been hooked on using my energy to make an impact and bring out the best in others. This energy drew me to nonprofit organizations, where I quickly learned that being generous with your time, energy, or money makes you feel good, but can also be exhausting. And while you are focused on the day-to-day, it is easy to lose sight of the impact you set out to create. Whether you are a nonprofit working towards a cause or a business looking to give back, to achieve your purpose you need a combination of passion and strategy.


With over a decade of experience with nonprofit and social sector organizations, I wanted to take on projects that empowered others to leave a lasting impact on the places they call home. That’s why I started Curio412, to help others develop systems that reflect their goals, so they can focus on making a BIG impact.
