My work is an ever-changing mix of collaborative evaluation with tribes, state and community-based organizations throughout the nation. While each project and client are unique, the work has the common thread of improving lives and communities whether it be ensuring children enter school ready to learn and succeed, enabling the elderly to age in place, assisting families to make their homes safe and energy-efficient, eradicating hunger or reducing disproportionate minority contact in the justice system. As an external evaluator, I use a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods to provide insights that highlight outcomes and impact, motivate action and drive improvement. Not sure how to get started with evaluation? Let me and the NRC evaluation team help you figure out the questions you need to ask and the questions you need answered.
