Dear friends and clients of Ember Communications:

I've appreciated your partnership over these past years in our work together to advance important issues and passions.  Now I've taken that opportunity to a new level...by accepting a new position as Chief Advancement Officer of Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota (LSS) effective December 1.

While the messaging and advocacy services of Ember Communications will not continue into the new year, our personal history business will move forward under leadership of our passionate writers who love writing inspiring life stories or documenting personal stories of hope created by local nonprofit organizations.  Please visit our Personal History page for more information!

Many have asked about my personal journey to LSS.  I spent much of 2007 traveling around the country (with a brief detour to India!) working as a consultant to advance causes of  passion for me, like creating new education opportunities for kids and preventing childhood sexual abuse.  But I wanted to use my past gift of public service to make a greater impact than what one person can do alone.

When Lutheran Social Service (LSS) of Minnesota came into my life, I didn’t know much about it.  As the largest human services organization in our state, it is filled with possibilities to change people’s lives and energize our vital community.  It is a great match for my legislative passions of helping children and families, seniors, and people with disabilities.  As Chief Advancement Officer I lead a passionate team in marketing, communications, development, policy and advocacy and help create a real public will to serve our community.   LSS serves people of all faiths and cultures in hundreds of Minnesota communities. Check out www.lssmn.org to learn more.  It is energizing!  I'm excited about LSS and all that it does.  If you've been touched by LSS, please let me know! 

May your holidays be blessed with love and care for family and friends.  May the new year energize you in your efforts to help others.  It is all about the power of one...plus one...plus one. 



It's still all about creating communication that connects people™!
