Jennifer is always optimistic. She lends a great deal of corporate experience to the team, and thinks WAY outside of the box. 

Jennifer: As a seasoned marketing strategist, I have worked across multiple disciplines in a variety of industries, from home building to theme parks to higher education. This broad range of experiences enables her to uncover hidden resources that when tapped, lead to better outcomes for clients. I'm a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success as well as the greater Springfield, Ohio, AFP.

Lead Grant Writer & Copy Editor

Operations and R&D

Leslie is by far the most detail-oriented and deadline conscientious grant writer whom I have ever had the opportunity to work with.  I trust her deeply and appreciate her role on our team. 

Leslie: I have extensive experience as a grant writer and have written successful proposals for a wide variety of organizations, including nonprofits working in the areas of human services, senior care, the arts, environment, animal welfare, health care, mental health, and workforce development.  I've written hundreds of published articles on a wide variety of topics, most notably environmental and animal protection issues. I was the News Editor for The Animals’ Agenda Magazine and was a Co-Founder and Contributing Writer to E: The Environmental Magazine. 

I've worked for several nonprofits and small businesses, including The Omega Institute, Capital Area Soccer League, Ceres Press, Sugar Hill Records, and Brother Wolf Animal Rescue,. I spent many years with Duke University, where I served on the school’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee and its Staff Sustainability Committee. I've been an active volunteer for animal rescue groups, environmental causes, and hunger prevention organizations.

"Pablo has a keen eye for capturing unique mission moments that become lasting soundbites for our clients. I cannot imagine GreenKite without him!"

Pablo: I am an independent filmmaker and journalist with over 10 years of experience in the media production industry, spanning movies, television, theater, and digital marketing.

Born in Brazil, I hold degrees in both Journalism and Film. I truly believe in the power of communications to help shape a better world and that mission has driven my work throughout my career. As a screenwriter, I have a broad portfolio of scripts for movies and television in Latin America. In addition, I am experienced with media production tools, including animation as well as graphic, motion, and web design.

Beyond my interdisciplinary background, I am curious, optimistic, and innovative. I am fully dedicated to everything I do and truly enjoy learning from others. As someone who has devoted his career to empowering people who do not have a voice, I am honored to serve diverse
nonprofit organizations and join strengths with Heidi Webb to advance GreenKite Fundraising’s mission.

Annette possesses the knowledge and intuition that every organization should have on its team! Organized, intelligent, and thoughtful, she thinks five steps ahead of every project.

Annette: I am a skilled nonprofit development professional with over 10 years of experience working for mental health nonprofit organizations. 

Born in Germany, I hold a business degree from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (Germany). My upbringing has infused me with a strong commitment to the value of citizen engagement in the pursuit of social justice. In addition to German, I am fluent in English, have reading knowledge of French, and am learning Spanish.


I have lived for the past 29 years in the Greater Washington DC area, where my husband works for an international organization.

I love the diversity of clients served by GreenKite Fundraising and I am excited to work with such meaningful and impactful missions. I am also excited to work with Heidi Webb again (we worked together for many years and even completed a capital campaign together for a major purchase and relations project).
