About Athena

Strengthening Cause-Driven Organizations 

Every nonprofit needs money. Unfortunately, that is where many organizations want to start – with fundraising. Jumping right into raising money is like building a house without a foundation. It might work for a while, but it’s not going to last. 

Athena Coaching & Consulting helps nonprofits to develop a solid foundation by curating a Board of Directors that is right for them. Through evaluating, educating, and empowering the board, we will help take your organization where you want (and the community needs) it to go. Not only that, developing your Board of Superheroes enables leaders to gain more time to focus on the important work of saving the world!

The Athena mission is to make the world a better place
by strengthening cause-driven organizations 
through development of dynamic Boards of Directors.



With a fierce dedication to solution focused problem-solving, let’s explore what’s the best that can happen.


Clients know that they can trust Athena to partner with them to do what is right and what is best for the unique needs of them and their company.


Clients can count on Athena to go above and beyond to ensure that they are delighted with our service and follow-through.


Building genuine relationships with Clients is front and center to every project at Athena. We care about Client’s career aspirations and business success.

Customer Focus

Through intense Client-focused listening we are able to start where they are. Every business has unique needs and challenges that cannot be effectively tackled without first listening to understand.
