Sarah has been practicing as an evaluator and researcher for almost 15 years and holds a Masters in Applied Sociology and a Certified Associate in Project Management.
I coach individuals and facilitate group learning that builds on existing and soon-to-be-discovered data and evaluation skills. I partner with social impact organizations and initiatives to develop their data strategy and build useful and insightful data collection and reporting systems. I have experience in the evaluation of a diverse range of programs and initiatives, including those in public health and social services.
What you should know about me:
As a reflection of my values of equity and social justice, I use participatory and empowerment approaches so that communities are centered and their voices and contributions highlighted throughout the data process. I embed learning culture principles into every group I work with.
With an appreciative inquiry approach, I will guide discussions that highlight the resources already present in your community and the opportunities to leverage strengths and collaborate.
Programs and initiatives are not static; they are part of a larger whole. I use systems thinking and principles in my approach to capture these components and connections. This includes understanding and incorporating the root causes of social injustice and racial inequality.
I’m a member of the American Evaluation Association (AEA) and the Washington Evaluators AEA affiliate. I’m also a member of the Project Management Institute Delaware Valley Chapter (PMI-DVC).
