Board Rx

Troubled by the distance between your vision and your board’s engagement? Let’s close the gap.

Have you ever publicly stated that you love your work yet privately added, “except for the board?”

You’re not alone. Unfortunately, challenging nonprofit boards are the rule, not the exception.

Whether your board’s a challenge because of one or multiple challenges, Board Rx is your prescription for nurturing it to health.

Board Rx identifies what keeps your board from fulfilling its responsibilities and creates a roadmap to health—whether, at your organization, better health means governing, giving, connecting you with community resources, or something else.

Board Rx is your opportunity to strengthen your board’s engagement in the critical services that only board members can do—governing and expanding your community’s reach.

When you invest in Board Rx, you no longer have to tackle your board challenges yourself. Karen partners with you (can be on the QT) to diagnose what’s keeping your board from health and move toward it so they can reach their potential—and you can sleep better at night. Board Rx changes boards from being a problem into an asset.

Turn Board Frustration into Board Power.

What our clients say about our board magic

Board RX


“Thank you so much. This was the most strategic and engaged the boards have ever been.” 


“The board now knows their job. They understand it includes fiduciary responsibilities. It’s not only about showing up at meetings or micromanaging the staff.”


“Karen gained the trust of the board. She listens well, communicates well, and kept us in the loop.”


“Karen is a deliberate, innovative, and insightful thought leader, which is so apparent in identifying issues and her approach to resolutions of those issues. I truly welcomed and appreciated Karen’s counsel and guidance in developing a model to improve the effectiveness of our board.”

Board Rx is your prescription to close the gap between the  vision & your board’s engagement.
