Strategic Services Consultant aziebell@propelnonprofits.org 612.249.6693

I believe in the power of relationship and the ability of our communities to solve the most pressing challenges we face.  I have over a decade of experience consulting with nonprofits, faith-based groups, schools, and governmental agencies around organizational leadership and health, strategy, and network development. I enjoy working with clients who are committed to making a difference in their communities and am passionate about building common vision, igniting creativity, and unleashing energy for positive change. As a doctoral candidate, my research focuses on transformational leadership practices and learning communities.

I live in the Corcoran neighborhood of Minneapolis, where I grow and preserve food from our community garden plot, read poetry, cook delicious meals for those I love, and create beautiful pieces of origami.
