What I Do
I believe in the power of nonprofit organizations and the people that support them. My services help nonprofits build capacity and better serve those that need them.
What my clients are saying —
Julie Ann has been an excellent addition to our Program Design Team for the Leadership Learning Lab. She has a special way of sharing her nonprofit board development expertise in a way that is warm and engaging, and her extensive experience provides a plethora of real-world examples to bring the content alive.
After working with Julie Ann on a non-profit board I can say she is someone who masterfully blends listening and action and is fun to work with. A winning combination.
Julie Ann’s consulting is based on successful non-profit leadership experience. She brings strong team building, prioritization, strategic thinking and leadership training to her clients. Organizations and teams are stronger, more resilient and better able to turn conflict into success after working with Julie Ann.
Huron Pines has relied on Julie Ann Rivers-Cochran for several years now for her awareness, experience and professional expertise in areas relating to nonprofit boards and operations. Evidenced by her presentations and knowledge of material, she has a solid understanding of the issues and challenges faced by nonprofits and brings relevant solutions to our workshop audiences.
Julie Ann did a great job meeting our staff and Board Directors where they were at on their learning journeys. She encouraged them to look deeper at their implicit biases, dig into the work of learning and unlearning what it means to be anti-racist, and to explore how to become a real ally to the BIPOC people in their lives and communities.
