Adjunct Professor

I am a professional evaluator with over 25 years of experience.  I have conducted evaluations in the areas of health promotion, chronic disease prevention, health services, community capacity building, partnerships, community-based programming, leadership development, knowledge transfer and exchange, and early childhood development.  

I use a combination of approaches including participatory, utilization focused, theory-based, and system thinking including developmental evaluation. 

My research interests are in the areas of program evaluation and knowledge transfer and exchange.
