Most leaders don’t use their influence and social capital for climate impact. They are uncomfortable with the idea, don’t know how, or don’t prioritize it.
Not you! Own your voice and potential – become a pioneer in building social capital and changing the social norm for climate leadership in your sector.

I had been reticent to use social media aggressively and through a combination of direct support and coaching I was able to increase my presence in a big way and see results within DAYS.

Andrea is a magic climate impact maker!! She and I began working together as I headed into the big push to pass a first in the nation corporate GHG disclosure law and needed to get my voice and visibility to the next level. During the first call – with her awesome combination of passion, humor and smarts – she helped me articulate my ‘why’ and identify a set of practical tools and doable next steps for me to start taking THAT day.

I was familiar with Andrea’s take, networks and expertise, but did not know the full effect until I hired her for our first one-hour advising session. She very quickly understood the speaking opportunity I brought to her, asked what about my time and capacity to do some research and prep work, and then gave me very doable suggestions.
I got her advice on crafting a LinkedIn post, how to engage on social media in advance of the event, and how to use all that I’d done to develop content with post-event reflections. She zeros in, has deep insight on opportunity, understands how much work I can put in and makes it a doable – and energizing – task.
I went into the event with a much more strategic mindset and saw the enduring mindset shift of engagement she helped catalyze. Other people have said it before me, but her insights and understanding of the media and corporate sustainability storytelling map are game-changers. In one hour.

After years of monitoring climate and sustainability media, I’m now offering a new tips service. You pay nothing until after I contact you about an opportunity and you decide you’re in. I’ll share that I have a hot tip in a specific sector with everyone on the list for that specific sector, but the tip will only go to the first person who responds and makes payment.
I have deep DM-able networks with the media covering food systems/agriculture, transportation/mobility, affordable housing, clean energy, cultural influence, and policy.
I continually monitor and understand the strongest impact narrative for these topics and have deep insight into how your product/service can fit.
I’m open to discussing a regular retainer to advise you directly on emerging opportunities.
Fill out the form, and you’ll be on my list.
There’s no obligation until you see an opportunity you like.
No, I do not execute the work for you. I shift your mindset and spark new levels of thinking with a super strategic plan using my expertise and connections in corporations and the industry.
Yes! I do not have a team, but I do have a great list of partners in social media, content development, podcast strategy, and the like that I can share with clients.
I am not a PR firm. You likely already have one. But, in a one-hour session, I can guide you to the one or two key media folks for you to target and help you develop a deeper, more intentional, relationship-building strategy for a very specific activation.
It depends on what you need. We start with individual one-hour sessions, where I provide you with insight and a high-level strategy. Most clients take the strategy, integrate it, and return in 1-2 months for another clarity-catalyzing session. If you need a retainer to advise you regularly, we can discuss that.

In 2022, I had the privilege of facilitating two remarkable breakthroughs in climate action.
Food systems transition is one of the areas in which I have history, understanding, and networks.
In one instance, I helped a federal lawmaker see the connection between climate policy and food policy, which was later featured in a mainstream business publication.
In another case, I used my networks to secure an invitation for a corporate leader to a high-level, closed-door food systems transition event at COP27.
Success came from my unique perspective on climate influence and my ability to identify opportunities that benefit everyone involved.
A regionally recognized green building client was seeking more national media attention, so I reached out to a Fast Company writer I knew personally to recommend my client for a “most creative business person” story. To our delight, my client was featured in the article. I take pride in being a trusted source for delivering solid and impactful ideas to the media.
In two cases, I started working with NGOs on building national and global leadership presence before their websites were even up. By understanding the media coverage in those sectors and how they look for sources and stories related to upcoming sector events, I wove social media presence and content advice to get them into their targeted spheres of influence.
