I am dedicated to improving the lives of children and families through thoughtful, innovative policy and service delivery solutions. I partner with TBG to move and share information, with the intent of informing policy and practice.
I came to Denver to work for the National Conference of State Legislatures. I quickly learned the value of translating and packaging information to connect the policy, practice, and research communities. I have spent my career assessing public sector operations, working with research and evaluation teams to build evidence, identifying promising practices, providing technical assistance to human services leaders, and writing. I started CLH Strategies & Solutions in 2011 to focus on developing dissemination plans to share research, policy, and implementation strategies related to services for children and families.
I love to ski and go for bike rides – leisurely activities I can do with my family and friends and call exercise. ☺
Pets: I love my dog Maggie.
Travel: “Christmas in July” with family in N. Michigan.
Food: I can’t live without ice cream!
Hometown: Troy, Mich.
