Digital strategies for social impact
I use the tools of the 21st century to creatively communicate research. Here’s how.
With over a decade of experience in academia and evaluation, I know where researchers are coming from.
Data cannot speak on its own. I work with organizations to give voice to their data so that it has impact.
I help researchers to develop websites that allow them to showcase their work with the world.
Put down the PDF. I help researchers move their reporting online, allowing them to communicate research in new ways.
Great writing is the fundamental building block on top of which I help organizations communicate their research.
When Measure 99 was approved by voters in 2016, Oregon became the first state in the nation to provide funding for all schools to participate in Outdoor School. In 2017, the Gray Family Foundation brought me on board to measure levels of participation in Outdoor School prior to the start of Measure 99 funding. This project, which involved gathering data from over 1000 schools, led to the publication of a report rich in insights, made possible by creative data visualization, including a series of maps like the one seen here.
