Before joining Pew, she was president of The Learning Agenda, a consulting firm that helps philanthropies, nonprofits, and educators across the country expand opportunities for youth in under-resourced communities. She has also served as vice president of research, innovation, and growth for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, and as a consultant with the Bridgespan Group, where she developed sustainability and growth plans, performance management frameworks, and replication strategies for nonprofits.
