Several things become crystal clear when you look closely at the background of Luvina Beckley-Knight, who is currently the CEO of MHM and Associates. However, the most important trait she evoke is her unwillingness to back away from a challenge. There are reasons for this. Luvina has always been competitively that’s obvious, given the time she spent as a prominent college basketball player who starred on a team that won a national Division III championship back in 1983.

It could very well be competitive streak that gives Luvina Beckley-Knight an edge and makes her better than most others in her profession, which involves securing grants for important projects. Since she sees that effort as being akin to the challenge of hitting a 15-foot jumper with a second to go in front of a crowd of thousands, she is well equipped for the challenge. Luvina Beckley-Knight is well aware there is always limited funding available to her clients from agencies, foundations, investors and other funders, but there is also an over-abundance of applicants for such funding.

Therefore, Luvina Beckley-Knight understands the challenge in helping applicants stand out. Making sure a grant proposal gets the money is a major challenge she actually appreciates and welcomes. After leading MHM for more than two decades, she has and she has never failed to compete with the others in her field, which means she has succeeded quite often with making lives better. In addition to her sports background, Luvina Beckley-Knight’s proven expertise is apparent in many areas, especially as regards the acquisition of funds for community revitalization activities, grants and targeted investment.
