Hodges Consulting
Chattanooga, TN and virtual
A near 20-year veteran of the nonprofit technology space, Dottie Hodges formed Hodges Consulting in early 2011 to provide unique high-touch service to carefully selected nonprofit clients. Specializing in strategic leadership and analysis, user experience development, and client communications, she is a key player on the team to drive the strategy and the user approach – in attracting and marketing to key audiences, engaging them with the right tool and user experience, and encouraging them to return. Dottie previously led the nonprofit practice for 5 years at Northridge Interactive, serving clients ranging from the ACLU to YouthAIDS and MoveOn. While at Northridge, she led the pioneering viral video development for several organizations. Key engagements also included a full requirements and brand development effort for a nonprofit’s new social networking site. Prior to Northridge Dottie was a founder of Beaconfire consulting, serving nonprofits in services such as creative leadership and executing marketing campaigns for organizations including Easter Seals and Heifer International. She came to Beaconfire from leading the early days of Web engagement for nonprofits through NMP/AppNet, where her work with World Wildlife Fund, the ACLU, and many other nonprofits paved the way for organizations who followed. Dottie has an individualized degree from the University of Tennessee in Environmental Studies and her early career included tenures at the League of Conservation Voters, Campus Green Vote, and The Nature Conservancy. Dottie lives with her new husband, son, stepdaughter, and three corgis in Chattanooga, TN. She enjoys stand up paddleboard training and racing, birding, and photography. She is a master writer of haikus, the best person to ask for advice on room colors, and obsesses about the novels she could write if she only had the time.
