As an independent consultant in research, evaluation, and facilitation, I work in close partnership with clients to help advance their missions and inform approaches to policy and program decision-making.


I use qualitative social science methods that are research-based, intentional, and grounded in the power of participatory engagement. I create and hold space for people to share knowledge, lived experiences, and insights. I use directed and skillful facilitation to collect data in service of the advancement and impact of my clients' work.


My customized services include

- designing data collection tools and research approaches

- conducting interviews

- facilitating listening sessions and focus groups

- conducting literature reviews, precedents, or case studies

- organizing and analyzing data

- writing findings

- sharing recommendations and insights

- workshop and meeting facilitation

- climate-resilient landscape master planning


Qualitative research helps us better understand attitudes, values, mindsets, approaches, perspectives, and motivations in people. These learnings help clients advance their goals in meaningful ways.
