Nicole, MPH/MSW, has over 10 years experience working in the nonprofit and government sectors, mainly as an evaluator and technical assistance provider to communities of color. The warrior in her majored in community organizing to secure structural change, but her heart was called to project evaluation with an emphasis on social justice. She contributes to the change process by documenting that which has proven effective. To support the learning and reflection process, she questions process while gaining program insight. Nicole was excited by WiLD’s audacity to support new voices, perspectives, and grow new power.
Nicole has conducted numerous program evaluations in many styles (e.g., participatory, advocacy) and formats (e.g., cross-sectional, qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods). As a trainer, she provides training and capacity building to organizations in evaluation, linking evaluation to organizational management and long-term planning while pursuing her doctorate in social work. She conducts her local and national evaluation work through NNR Evaluation, Planning, & Research LLC, a values-based, social justice entity that helps build the evaluative power of organizations serving communities of color and constituent-led organizations.
