At the age of 34, I became the Chief Financial Officer of a large national refugee and immigration nonprofit a few months post 9-11. Because the entire process for bringing refugees into the U.S. came to a grinding halt, the agency endured a fiscal crisis. During that year I realized that for nonprofit organizations to be strong and vibrant, all members of the staff must take leadership roles. To weather dramatic downturns and daily struggles, organizations need to tap into the passions of each staff member. It was that year that I also realized my passion to help organizations (especially mission-based organizations) develop and plan with staff in a way that nurtures their individual development and fosters organizational vibrancy.

As an intensely curious person and life-long learner, I do not settle for cookie-cutter approaches. Therefore I have developed Negstad consulting into a firm that blends creativity and thorough research to develop customized solutions for nonprofits. How do we incorporate the best of both worlds? First, by intently listening, we study your organization's unique context, culture and desired results. Second, we keep current on the latest trends that are working right now to help nonprofits succeed. We take those trends-and our toolkit of resources-and apply them to your context. Negstad Consulting has also developed strategic partnerships with outside experts and firms, giving us the ability to provide comprehensive services to nonprofits.
