About me and the company
Remember the scientific method?
(Yes, the one you first learned about in 6th grade science class.) This is how I think and experience the world. I thrive on the process of inquiry.
I am most inspired when I am involved in the iterative process of applying and testing knowledge and research. From digging into survey data to crafting a regional issue-based grantmaking strategy, I do my best work when I am working at a variety of magnifications with a range of stakeholders and people that have different perspectives from my own.
This was one of the biggest draws in starting my strategy and research consulting business. I love thinking big picture and then rolling up my sleeves to get into the weeds with clients. My mission is to help you ask and answer questions. The right questions. Those that will meet your goals in the most effective and efficient way.
