I am an experienced (25+ years) evaluator with expertise in process and outcome evaluation and their use in organizational development and change.

Finally, I provide evaluation support to public agencies in New Hampshire including the 21st Century Community Learning Center Program at the NH Department of Education and the Asthma Control Program at the NH Department of Health and Human Services.

I previously worked as a Senior Evaluation Associate at Innovation Network, a nonprofit consulting firm based in Washington, DC.  Prior to that, I was a Research Associate/Project Manager at the Harvard Family Research Project where I conducted evaluation research on afterschool programs. I was also an evaluation and technical support contractor working with field offices and nongovernmental organizations for the United States Agency for International Development.
