You feel overwhelmed by the needs of the world.
You have a passion for doing good, but you’re stuck on where to start.
You want to spend your time building movements that help people, but you spend all of your time dealing with logistics.
Hi, I’m Katey Zeh! I work with overwhelmed activists and organizations to tackle their most pressing challenges. Clients come to me with their exciting ideas–or their frustrating problems–and they’re stumped on how to move forward. Some of the common problems my clients have:
- Our staff is so small that we can’t get everything done. We’re all burned out.
- No one knows about the work we are doing, and we don’t know how to reach people.
- We want to launch a new project, but we’re not sure what our first steps should be.
I work to break down my clients’ biggest visions for change into practical, achievable steps, so they can get back to work fulfilling their missions to create a better world.
I call myself the Compassionate Pragmatist because I know how to build movements for justice effectively–and how to do it wholeheartedly.
I spent more than a decade in nonprofits launching projects from scratch. In 2010 I started the first and only denominational advocacy initiative focused on maternal health for the global United Methodist Church. I learned how to sustain and grow these campaigns over time through smart strategies. Now I love sharing these lessons with my clients.
As your thought partner I offer the support and resources you need to achieve your mission. We will work together to conquer your biggest obstacles by developing a plan of action that will move you toward your goals–one small step at a time.
Let’s make the world a more compassionate place together. Take that first step now.
