I partner with clients to design innovative solutions related to educational assessment and accountability. I engage with clients and their stakeholders to understand their goals, develop a strategy, and deliver creative solutions to complex problems.


I develop and deliver sustained professional development opportunities for teachers, leaders, and assessment professionals. Topics include assessment for learning, culturally-sustaining assessment, & re-imagining school accountability.


I collaborate with clients and colleagues to develop written products and presentations that advance our thinking and share our work. My portfolio includes academic research, white papers, policy briefs, toolkits, and blog posts.
