I’m Emily Culbertson, and I’m here to help you plan your next web project — or rescue the one you’re in right now.

For more than two decades, I have helped foundations, research and advocacy organizations, associations, and other non-profit institutions plan and complete successful digital projects.

I talk more about what I do on my Services page, but, in a nutshell, here’s what I can do for you:

  • Help you plan the early stages of a website project, especially if it’s been awhile since you last tackled your flagship website or need to change content management systems.
  • Draft and field your Request for Proposals to a targeted, diverse group of bidders and handle all the behind-the-scene work so you and your bidders both feel like it was a good use of time.
  • Help turn around a stuck or distressed website project.
  • Drop in for a day or less to review your proposal, talk to your team about good writing for the web, or facilitate a planning session.


I’ve been fortunate to work with clients of all sizes at foundations, research and advocacy organizations, hospitals, and other non-profit organizations. Here’s a sample what partners and clients have been kind enough to say about me on LinkedIn.

Rarely have I encountered someone who so gracefully and competently herded so many cats.

Even as the world was reeling from the onset of the pandemic, Emily’s professionalism and responsiveness were second to none.

If she wasn’t so pleasant to work with, you might even think of her as like The Cleaner from Pulp Fiction because she just makes things better. Efficient, effective, clear, punctual, wonderful.
