About Us


That's how people describe us and it's our biggest asset. Anaford Consulting, founded in 2016, is a boutique consulting firm dedicated to working with you to solve your organizational needs, not giving you a one-size-fits all solution to the issue your business is facing.

We're a black women-owned business proud to be based in Washington D.C., with years of experience: from working with national nonprofits that gross over $100million annually to community-based organizations that are just starting out. No job is too small.

We fill the space between the larger corporate giants with complicated fee structures and the smaller companies that have minimal experience.

Our Founder


Principal and Founder

Adriana Crawford, MPA

From modest beginnings as an academic tutor for a nonprofit based in one of New York City's most under-served communities, Adriana has long been on the front lines and ground level, when the work was often thankless but the need was great. Making strides that left a marked impact, she quickly moved through the nonprofit sector while firming up her skills as a facilitator, strategic planner, organizational development specialist, and program manager. Adriana has hands-on experience with how staff satisfaction and organizational effectiveness in the public and nonprofit sector affects performance.

With undergraduate degrees in Communication and Political Science, a graduate degree in Public Administration - Nonprofit and Public Performance, and certifications in Lean Six Sigma, Instructional Systems Design, and Organizational Change, she learned how to best work in the critical area between people and overarching organizational goals.

Her keen ability to assess a situation, diagnose inefficiencies, and propose solutions made her want to help other nonprofit and community-based organizations reach their next level so they can continue to help those that need it the most.

That's how Anaford Consulting was born.
