Founder & CEO 

It's so great to meet you! I'm Trina.


We live in a world where nonprofit team members have to perform herculean acts to circumvent the numerous capacity constraints within their organizations in order to do what they love, which is to provide care and services to their clients.


I am passionate about strengthening the systems that support those living in some of the most challenging economic conditions, and it is from this place that Lavender Eucalyptus LLC was born—built upon my background in nonprofit management, program administration, and financial services. 

I'm on a mission to change that!


I'd love to connect and explore how we can increase your team's capacity and improve productivity overall. 


Like the calming effects of lavender and eucalyptus, our mission is to ease those capacity constraints by delivering high-quality process optimization solutions that efficiently reallocate resources so program teams can more effectively serve their clients.

The Situation

Unable to assess what has worked and change priorities; having to just "make it work."

diminished Quality of service

Feeling like there is a constant stream of “small fires” that need to be put out; losing sight on how role and efforts have impact.

limited Sense of contribution

Stress and burnout; wearing many hats; absences; creating many individual workarounds.

Feeling overworked

Constant flow of new initiatives and projects; constant trade-off between productivity and impact; missing deadlines.

lowered levels of achievement

Working more unpaid overtime hours; disproportional increases in pay relative to amount of work being done.

impact on Financial security

Low levels of morale, motivation, and engagement; inability to focus and go deep.

Are there shared views of all processes?

Is more
than 20% of the day devoted to routine processes or putting out “fires”?

Are there processes that interfere or conflict with service delivery?

Are processes executed with consistency?

Can your institutional knowledge be easily transferred to others?

Do you have the bandwidth to participate in leadership & team development activities?

Your Processes

Keeping the effects of those constraints in mind...

Process Mapping & Workflow Automation

Workflows and systems can be put in place for nearly all routine activities that occur daily, monthly, and annually, as well as for each service you provide.

When used effectively, automated workflows improve process quality and accuracy as well as help team members redirect an average of six hours per week to higher value work, like client services and the overall client experience. 

Research Process

We use observations, team member interviews, and other methods to gather information about your process.

Map Process

We then use the insights gathered from you and your team about the process to map out a current state.

Identify Inefficiencies

Next, we identify parts of the process that could be streamlined or eliminated,

Automate Process

After that, we apply an automation solution and test the workflow to ensure objectives are met.

Maintain Momentum

The final steps include a formal knowledge transfer process and two check-ins to assess performance of the workflow against selected KPIs.

Our                                     5-step process.
