Cindy has been an HR Professional for over twenty-five years and has spent the last fifteen years serving the nonprofit sector exclusively. She is committed to equipping nonprofits and churches in attaining the highest levels of employee satisfaction and legal compliance, without sacrificing ministry objectives.
Cindy understands the spiritual aspects of business and the business aspects of spiritual endeavors, and her background in both areas allows her to help clients connect their ministry heart to their business sensibilities—especially as it relates to their employment practices. By bringing awareness to areas where clients may “not know what they don’t know” they will be better equipped to demonstrate the same level of excellence and commitment in their employment practices as they do in fulfilling their primary mission.
As a mentor to leaders in both the “human” and compliance sides of HR, Cindy will equip you to walk through the strategic and tactical sides of HR.
Cindy’s recently released the book, HR MATTERS: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt Your Ministry, is a first of its kind resource for both the “whys” and “hows” of demonstrating excellence as an employer. Click here for book info: HR Matters at

HR MATTERS: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt Your Ministry

“I have appreciated and relied on Cindy’s knowledge of HR for many years. She helps me reconcile my responsibilities as a nonprofit employer in the context of being a Christ follower and finds effective ways of accomplishing our goals without sacrificing our duties. Her compassion and love for others is always obvious even in the hard decisions. Cindy’s sage advice has been the best I have ever had as a nonprofit executive director!”
