Evaluation and Program Development Specialist
I serve as an Evaluation and Program Development Specialist in the Office of Program Support Services. My goal is to help us do a better job of assessing program outcomes in order to be able to tell our story and communicate our impact. To do this, I support program development and evaluation in select Institutes – I’m currently affiliated with Agriculture & Natural Resources Institutes – and by teaching program development and evaluation to build capacity among all colleagues. I also provide leadership for a variety of organization-wide program development and evaluation needs.
I began my career at UW-Extension in 1994 by providing leadership for two national Extension water quality education programs. I later served as a UWEX state specialist in the area of food security (2001-2010). More recently, I served as a UWEX evaluator doing work very much similar to my current position, though in the content areas of healthy living, human development and relationships, and family financial security.
