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.

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.
Stress and burnout; wearing many hats; absences; creating many individual workarounds.
Constant flow of new initiatives and projects; constant trade-off between productivity and impact; missing deadlines.
Working more unpaid overtime hours; disproportional increases in pay relative to amount of work being done.
Low levels of morale, motivation, and engagement; inability to focus and go deep.

Do you have the bandwidth to participate in leadership & team development activities?
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.
We use observations, team member interviews, and other methods to gather information about your process.
We then use the insights gathered from you and your team about the process to map out a current state.
Next, we identify parts of the process that could be streamlined or eliminated,
After that, we apply an automation solution and test the workflow to ensure objectives are met.
The final steps include a formal knowledge transfer process and two check-ins to assess performance of the workflow against selected KPIs.
