Grant Writing

Currently, I serve as the Grant Writer/ Prospect Researcher for Dillard University, a 150 year old Historically Black University in New Orleans, Louisiana.

I also work as a freelance grant writer and consultant for projects ranging from rainforest conservation to art camp for kids.

So far (knock on wood) I have a 100% track-record with nearly a million dollars in grant funding secured. Contact me about your project and let me hook you up with the resources you need to carry out your vision!
