As a strategic marketing consultant my expertise guides colleges, universities, nonprofits and social sector organizations in the development of the strategic organizational and individual narratives that really matter.

For mission-driven institutions, I work alongside presidents and their leadership teams to develop unique and sustainable communications and brand strategies that set them apart in the increasingly competitive and challenging landscape of the higher education and social sectors.

For individuals who are in the market for new executive leadership opportunities, I develop high-level search strategies and the all-important application portfolios that support them, ensuring that aspiring presidents, vice presidents, deans, and directors move successfully through the multiple stages of executive search, career advancement, and professional growth.

I’ve worked with Lyn at top-tier schools, mid-tier, and those who need her ministrations to stay viable in a changing, challenging landscape. Across all kinds of challenges, and no few number of crises, Lyn steadies the hands of college presidents and senior leadership, thinks strategically and implements tactically, and adds value to the institutions she works with.

With her deep knowledge of higher ed (from the inside and outside), she offers counsel and perspectives that move issues to productive discussions, to solutions—speedily.
