I first worked with Social Impact as an intern during my graduate studies in the Global Human Development program at Georgetown University and quickly realized that I wanted to build my career in monitoring & evaluation for development programs. This sector offers a rare opportunity to blend my skills in management, research and analysis, learning, and international development. My portfolio at SI has changed a lot since I was hired and has increased in complexity. As a program assistant and associate, I primarily managed short-term performance evaluations and became very familiar with the evaluation project lifecycle. As a program manager, I led large, multi-year projects and built my technical skills as an evaluation specialist and/or team member through projects funded by MCC, USAID, and private donors.
Now, as a senior program manager, I supervise other staff in addition to managing my own portfolio of evaluations and technical assignments. My technical work includes both evaluation and facilitation/training across a variety of sectors, ranging from vocational education in Mongolia to leadership education across the African continent. I also enjoy leading SI’s in-house data visualization group and exploring innovative qualitative data collection techniques. SI has helped me grow my skills alongside people who care deeply about their work and its impact. This is a company that lives its values—integrity, high-quality work, camaraderie, and collaboration and learning.
