Hi! I'm Maureen.
I'm Colorado Nonprofit Association's Communications Director. I joined the Association team in May 2019.
I am an award-winning marketing and communications professional with over ten years of experience, both domestic and abroad. I pride myself on transforming big ideas into meaningful results. I understand the value of data-driven decision making and I believe "showing up for your audiences" is key to communication success. My work intersects strategy and technology with an underlying current of culture, community and innovation.
My main driver is the creation and implementation of thoughtful, integrated strategies that positively impact the Association, as well as nonprofits across Colorado. I am on a mission to boldly share the importance of balancing heart & science in all strategic communications efforts, no matter your budget, capacity or experience. And, in early 2019, I was named PR News’ Nonprofit Communicator of the Year!
I love dynamic brainstorming sessions, good coffee, craft beer, and new experiences. I host a podcast in my spare time. To talk more about strategic communications, emerging technologies or social impact, connect with me at [email protected] or 303-813-4215 ext. 270.
I look forward to learning more about you and your work!
During the month of July, I am offering communications and marketing “office hours” to forge new relationships with and to provide capacity building for nonprofits across Colorado. Each Friday in July, from 1:00 PM MT to 3:00 PM MT, I am offering 15-minute video chat appointments to discuss nonprofit communications and marketing, growing pains, bright ideas, strategy design, budgets, social media, email marketing, content creation, and so much more. Signing up for office hours is super simple, and it's free. Find your day and time HERE.
