Having previously been a Senior Evaluator at Apex for over ten years, I am fortunate to continue to collaborate with the amazing team there contributing to diverse and important projects. As a collaborator with Apex, I plan and conduct large and small-scale evaluations, providing organizational consulting and capacity-building support to clients in areas such as logic modeling, data visualization, and systems-based evaluation. I seek to engage multiple stakeholder groups in designing and conducting program evaluations that lead to program improvement and organizational capacity building.

Background and Education

While at Apex, and since founding Insight Allies, I have worked with partners across the education spectrum in early childhood, K-12, community schools, higher education, and school health. I received my master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Colorado and my doctorate in Community and Prevention Research from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where I was a pre-doctoral fellow with NIMH’s Prevention and Research Training Program. I have twice served as President of the New Mexico Evaluators.

I am lucky to live in beautiful Albuquerque as part of a busy and fun household with my four kids, husband, two dogs, and four cats. There is rarely a dull moment!
