What is your fee?
I use a fee for service model which means that I bill for the whole project with a deliverables based approach versus incrementally by the hour. Hourly rates may be considered, however, it is not common for my practice given my capacity. I charge a deposit and final payment and milestone installments in between.
How long would you support my organization?
At our free consult/intake meeting, we will discuss timelines for your needs. I am open to long-term retainer work, allowing me the flexibility to move in your organization over a longer period of time, learning your needs organically and responding as an auxiliary member of your organization. I am also happy to take on short term projects with a start and end date.
What industries do you specialize in?
Public libraries, municipalities, nonprofit organizations, arts and culture.
Do you offer a free consultation?
Yes, this first meeting (and hopefully the first of many with you) is important to understand your needs and interest in partnering with you. I set aside one hour to review your requests and then follow up within the week with a written proposal of deliverables and fees.
Is all of the work done by you alone or do you have a team?
Most of my work is done by me, however, as I continue to grow and take on larger projects, I may bring on subcontractors. All of the subcontractors I work with have been vetted and are trained by me. Any work requiring meetings will always be done by me. Work involving administrative tasks may be done by a subcontractor.
What size companies do you work with?
I have worked with all size companies but prefer to work with smaller organizations.
What geographical areas do you serve?
My work is primarily focused in my hometown of Lawrence, however, I have served clients in Lowell and Boston, and am open to other areas
