With over 20 years of experience in management, nonprofit, entrepreneurship, event planning & management, fundraising, mentorship, and education, Nathan is a humble thought leader visionary with a heart to serve others. He has the breadth and depth of experience needed to quickly understand any business and craft viable customized solutions for each company.
I believe we have to fail forward. However, some have learned to get up and not give up. There’s a market for your dream; even if you have to create it – it exists.
Prior to co-founding NW & Associates in early 2015, Nathan started a nonprofit serving middle and high schools in Vancouver, WA to identify and pursue their passions. In the first year of programming, his organization collaborated in serving over 1,500 youth. His unforeseen success led to national programming with the partnership with Rachel’s Challenge. From young Recruit Webster in MCRD San Diego, Nathan has always been a leader of the pack. He’s held various management positions throughout his career at Fortune 500 companies.
In 2016, Nathan became Mr. Social Entrepreneur giving back business tips for those doing social good via his podcast. He talked about government and nonprofit culture using his experiences to help others. Nathan’s own journey of being a nonprofit founder and executive director has left a spot in his heart because he knows those founder-led organizations put passion before profit.
Also, Nathan is an Adjunct Business Professor at Clark College, Clackamas Community College, and Warner Pacific University. Nathan teaches business, marketing, and entrepreneurship. He’s also the Faculty Advisor for the student program, Clark Entrepreneurs.
When not working, he likes to enjoy the beautiful scenery in the Pacific Northwest. His passion to be competitive never stops. Nathan’s joy of finding new things to learn, hang out with his kids, and giving back to others keeps him going. If you have the chance to get to know Nathan, you’ll learn he’s a huge teddy bear who loves life with a big heart.
There’s no other feeling than knowing you have helped others live life on their terms. Dream Big!

In the business world, cash flow is king. The best way to have cashflow is to have a return on everything you do as a business. But in marketing, content is king. It’s not an either/or, it’s both. If you want to make money, you have to do everything possible to yield a return on every investment, sacrifice, and activity the organization has received or executed.December 13, 2020
