Simplifying complex data and concepts into actionable insights
I work with teams to make data-driven decisions
My passion for creating data-driven decisions led me to evaluation. I work to design the process to collect the data needed to inform program and policy decisions and report the findings to stakeholders at all levels. When I entered into evaluation, I was an "accidental evaluator." I have gone on to receive a Masters degree in the field and am passionate about breaking down complex topics so all stakeholders can be engaged participants in the evaluation process from design to deliverable.
Recent work includes designing and conducting formative, summative, process, and impact evaluations, working directly with local M&E teams in three continents and seven countries, leading an international organization-wide M&E capacity-building initiative, transitioning data collection from paper forms to an electronic data collection tool to reduce data collection and entry time by more than 70%, managing a database with over 40,000 records, and more.
