Giving a voice to local businesses, activists, foodies, and passionate localists like myself is my most rewarding work. Whether you want to start a localist business, grow an economic development program in your organization, connect healthy economies to wellness through a campaign for better access to local food, convene a group of businesses into a localist network, or change a policy to make local purchasing of products easier in your company or city government, I can help you. Integral to my consulting work – whether with local business owners, nonprofit professionals, or government officials – is convening diverse groups across sectors to facilitate thoughtful, useful dialogues and engage community members in the planning and participation of their local economy.
