The data you need to understand
your work

We support education and workforce development clients in assessing and reimagining programs, spaces, and services.

I hold a PhD from the University of Minnesota's Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development. I bring a deep knowledge of education and workforce development and a passion for equity to my work. Serving as the external evaluator for innovative projects through the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) allows me to learn and share evaluation best practices from diverse agencies and directorates. I am a certified administrator of Hogan and CliftonStrengths Assessments and enjoy working with leaders to build their leadership and evaluation capacity. I am proud to serve on the Executive Board of Parent Teacher Home Visits
