Welcome

Often small businesses and non-profits lack resources to hire full-time staff to better utilize systems and organize data. I put the pieces together and make complex systems understandable.

About

I worked for a non-profit for over 8 years where I realized my passion for using systems to advance an organization’s mission and goals.

Following are projects I’ve completed that sharpened and honed the expertise I can share with you.

CRM Systems

I am a Salesforce Certified Administrator, have my own developer edition and can make custom objects, fields, report types, record types, dashboards, roles and permissions, workflow rules and processes, and install and configure apps.

I have the Quick Base App Builder certification, a developer edition and can create apps, tables, forms, relationships, reports and automations.

Websites & Board Portals

I designed this website, added a store to a client’s existing website and created websites for new and existing businesses and non-profits.

I designed a template I can use to build your non-profit’s private portal where board directors can view meeting documents, minutes, upcoming events and organizational resources. Read my blog post about board portals here.

Business Processes

I created a process for a client to resolve audit deficiencies and helped update and expand the client’s manuals to align with the new procedures.

I produced and maintained manuals for governance, accounting, systems and software, and IT guidelines. In addition I train and create manuals for my clients to maintain their websites and CRM systems independently.

Testimonials

“We use StarChapter for our website, CRM and email communications. Meg worked with StarChapter to put into place a new website template, presented our focus group with key design elements, created the content and then trained a board member to manage the website going forward. We appreciate everything Meg did and look forward to working with her in the future.”
