Florence Corpening has been named as a consultant for Outfitters4, a local agency that provides advice and support to nonprofits.
Corpening will provide executive coaching and leadership development to nonprofit clients, according to a press release.
“We are extremely fortunate to have someone with Ms. Corpening’s expertise and experience join us,” said CEO Doug Borwick.
“Her understanding of the need for laser-like focus on mission coupled with management practices rooted in the highest standards of resource stewardship fits our operating philosophy precisely.

“Ms. Corpening is possessed of an open and engaging management style that encourages others to be more than they ever imagined they could be. I am confident she will bring this–and much more–to her clients at Outfitters4,” says Twana Wellman, executive director of the nonprofit Experiment in Self Reliance.
Ms. Corpening received her BS and master’s degrees from Appalachian State University. She presently serves on the boards or committees of the Children’s Home, Family Services, The Women’s Fund of Forsyth County, The Kate B.
