Energetic. Creative. Resourceful.

Seasoned non-profit and small-biz professional with entrepreneurial flair.

I feel it in my fingers.

I feel it in my toes.

I am a freelance writer, funding strategist, grant guru, and non-profit brainiac.

With 20+ years of non-profit experience under my belt, I'm comfortable saying that I'm a non-profit brainiac, offering education, experience, and enthusiasm to your new or established non-profit organization.

Despite more than two decades of experience, I'm no "old-school" thinker, as I currently spend A LOT of my professional time working on and with platforms like Canva, MailChimp, Teams, Google Workspace, Upwork, multiple grant databases, Zoom, HubSpot, and many others.

I encourage you to further review my experience and qualifications -- link below to my writing portfolio if you seek a freelance writer. After you've snooped me, let's talk! You've got things to do, and I'm ready to be a resource to you! C'mon, let's get moving!

Hey there,

I’m Libby O’Malley!

I’m an energetic, hardworking mama hanging with my darling daughter, Morgan, on the coast of North Carolina in Morehead City. I manage and consult with non-profit organizations and small businesses (or entrepreneurs ready to start a business). With an endless curiosity for learning new things, consulting and freelancing are what I do for work so that I can play (which means getting on a boat – sailboat or power boat — at every possible opportunity)!

In addition to my non-profit/small-biz career, I have dabbled in the technology startup sector, offered strategic planning services, and become highly proficient at website development as a project manager. Branding and marketing are my love languages, and I am thrilled every time I help orgs be mission-focused or when I get to breathe life into a stagnant small business, especially one struggling to succeed in the digital world in which we now live and breathe.

Connecting with people is my oxygen. And whether it’s connecting over a mutual love of the eastern Carolina coast, a shared history of boating, or a common interest in helping your business or organization go to the next level, let’s find a time to chat!

One of my favorite quotes, by the formidable Eleanor Roosevelt, is “Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.” I’m eager to connect with you and put our GREAT minds together while discussing your ideas! A favorite lyric (that was my senior quote in high school — a lifetime ago...) is from a song by an eastern Carolina beach music band, the Tams. To this day, it remains my daily mantra: “Be young. Be foolish. But be happy.

I’m super happy that you found me here online, and I look forward to seeing you soon -- whether that’s in person or virtually!

Wishing you ALL good things,

"Libby supported my company in applying for a highly complex and competitive $3 million RFP with a government agency - which involved writing complex content (from scratch) and collating dozens of data points from a consortium of five different organizations. Libby helped our group formulate the strategy, wrote all the best words, was THERE for me to support the process of throughing a tight timeline (involving many late nights and dozens of Zoom meetings), and she HAD. MY. BACK. The work product was outstanding. A thousand cheers for Libby - there is NO one I'd rather work with; it was an invaluable experience.
