Gretchen Kinder, (she/her/hers)
A community organizer turned development and marketing professional, Gretchen has nearly 25 years of professional experience leading teams to collaboratively develop high-impact and consumer-focused communications initiatives. A "Jane-of-All-Trades," she moves easily between big picture thinking and the smallest details of a project plan. She has foundation-level certification from the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) and expects to achieve Capture Practitioner certification before the end of 2021.
Gretchen launched her career as a public health organizer after earning graduate degrees in Public Health and Social Work from Boston University. She has worked in nonprofit, government, and corporate environments where she has managed fundraising and development activities, strategic planning, program development, and marketing and community relations. Gretchen’s professional experience is primarily in public and community health, government healthcare programs, and public and early education.
Today, Gretchen lives in a tiny, seaside suburb south of Boston. When she isn’t working, she is gardening (or thinking about gardening), baking for her neighbors, or planning her next travel adventure with her spouse.
My favorite thing about this work: Helping organizations and individuals develop and refine their voice so they can deliver the greatest value to their communities.
