My guest today is Debra Box. Debra is the Principal and Founder of In the Box Consulting. Prior to developing her consulting business, Debra led and developed the business model for Support KC, a nonprofit shared service organization that provides accounting, fund development, governance, and strategic planning services to nonprofits in the Kansas City area.

Debra has worked closely with hundreds of nonprofit leaders to help them find creative ways to leverage resources and better utilize their skills and time.  In addition to coaching nonprofit executives, Debra has worked with boards to help them develop meaningful governance structures.  She works closely with both boards and staff to help them define their missions and communicate how their mission impacts those they serve.

Debra’s certifications include governance consulting from BoardSource and a certificate in facilitation.  Her education includes a BS in Business Administration from the UMKC Bloch School and a master’s degree in human resources with an emphasis on Organizational Development from Ottawa University.
