Who We Are


Molly Penn | Partner

As a consultant to mission-based organizations for nearly two decades, Molly has deep experience with organizations in the arts and social justice, but has worked broadly across many sectors to help organizations become stronger and have a greater impact. She is often hired for her facilitation skills, in which all voices are heard. Molly began her professional life in senior staff roles at both large and small organizations. She has an MBA in Management from Fordham University, a Masters in Arts Management from Columbia University and a BA from Bard College. She is Lean-certified and trained as a professional coach. Molly is a member of the board of the Alliance for Nonprofit Management.


Deborah Flood | Partner

Deborah works with leaders of mission-driven organizations to answer the big picture questions: Why do we do what we do? How can we best achieve our mission? Deborah draws on her greatest strengths— high-level strategy development and excellent analytical, communication and facilitation skills. Before beginning consulting 12 years ago, Deborah held senior staff positions at US and international nonprofits and foundations, including several years at the Open Society Foundations. She has a BA from Oberlin College and a Masters degree in International Affairs from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs.

Our Team

For each engagement, we bring a tailored team of consultants who complement our skills and talents in such areas as: fundraising, financial consulting, outcomes assessment and administrative support.

Penn Flood Consulting worked with my nonprofit to assess and enhance the day to day practices and staffing structure of our complex finance team. They brought new ideas to the table, thoughtfully guided us through self-assessments and produced a user-friendly final report that positioned us to better utilize our talent pool.
