Member since: 2019

My mission is to help clients move the needle forward on building a more equitable and sustainable future for our world.

I have ten years of research and consulting experience helping clients create innovative customer programs. My current position at Opinion Dynamics is as an evaluation research manager helping some of the largest public utilities (power companies) and other public organizations deliver energy efficiency and sustainability programs. As an evaluator, my core purpose is to ensure that clients are using public dollars in cost-effective ways, and that their programs maximize their potential for social good.

At Opinion Dynamics, some of my most notable clients have been Pacific Gas and Electric and the California Public Utilities Commission. I am also Co-Chair of the national Association for Energy Services Professionals (AESP) Research and Evaluation Topic Committee. In this capacity, I collaborate with like-minded professionals to move the needle forward on research methods. In past positions, I have provided research and evaluation services to several internationally-recognized charitable organizations, such as InterAction and ChildFund International.
Co-Chair AESP Research & Evaluation Topic Committee which explores a host of issues, including (but not limited to) methodologies, best practices, practical examples of how research and evaluation inform, drive, and shift progress, and regulatory issues affecting evaluation and research requirements and needs.
