Hi! I’m glad you found me!

I’m a researcher, evaluator, facilitator, collaborator, and communicator. I use program evaluation and applied research tools to support organizational and program improvement.

When doing so I:

  • Center relationships and trust building
  • Focus on what is most meaningful and useful to decision makers and program users
  • Leave room for inevitable change, adapt and support adaptation
  • Advance equity

I prefer to work collaboratively – with clients, partners, and stakeholders. Together we’ll determine your information needs, work to gather and make sense of data, and put our learning to use.

I bring a range of experiences to this work. I am currently a Senior Research & Learning Officer at The Oregon Community Foundation where I’m responsible for designing, managing and conducting evaluations of Foundation programs and initiatives in collaboration with a range of community partners. I’ve previously held roles in program evaluation, higher education learning assessment, research and organizational improvement. I have a Masters in Public Administration with a specialization in social work and social welfare policy, with an undergraduate education in Anthropology & Psychology.

I’ve also been cultivating expertise in survey question design since 2012 and co-authored the text Designing Quality Survey Questions with Sheila Beth Robinson that was published by Sage in 2018. Sheila and I regularly conduct workshops and provide consultation on survey design and analysis. Let us know if we can help you collect higher quality, more useful data with less burden on your respondents.
